About Harvard Heights

The relatively small neighborhood of Harvard Heights is located just north of the I-10 freeway with Olympic Boulevard as its northern border and Western and Normandy streets creating its eastern and western edges. This neighborhood once catered to the wealthy and has lots of large, beautiful, craftsman houses. Some of the homes fell into disrepair over the last few decades, but this area is prime for a revival.

Getting Around Harvard Heights

Around Harvard Heights

The culinary scene within Harvard Heights is not well known or very established, however there are some wonderful hole-in-the-wall restaurants in and around the general area. El Cholo's original location, established in 1923, can be found here. With such a diverse and vibrant population in Harvard Heights, great new restaurants are sure to pop up soon. You can also find excellent eats just a short drive away in neighboring Korea and Thai Towns.  Expect to see a mix of relatively quiet, urban streets and some busy, somewhat gritty areas with shopping centers and fast food restaurants. Harvard Heights isn't a dangerous neighborhood, but it's not home to any particularly appealing amenities or landmarks, so a lot of the people you see are simply passing through.

Friday nights in Harvard Heights can get fairly busy. People out for a night on the town are either driving to other neighborhoods or coming to Harvard Heights for a house party. However, with the addition of the Expo line train and its growing popularity, it is only a matter of time before more commercial locations begin popping up within Harvard Heights itself.

A perfect Sunday in Harvard Heights would consist of making the trek on the 10 freeway west to the beach and then avoiding traffic back to the neighborhood to make dinner at home. There are some farmers markets nearby in Harvard Heights but none that are really walkable. This is a neighborhood that is due for a lot of positive change in the next decade, however, so investing in it now may pay dividends soon.

Ideal places to live in Harvard Heights vary based on what you want around you. The southern part of the neighborhood is generally considered to be less appealing due to its proximity to the I-10 freeway. The northern part of Harvard Heights has a lot of access to other more appealing commercial districts, like Koreatown and Hollywood. However, the entire neighborhood is relatively landlocked within the urban sprawl of Central L.A. so it varies from street to street in many cases.
