South Los Angeles

With the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line currently under construction, the Los Angeles Rams heading to their new Inglewood stadium in 2019, and the revamp of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza into a pedestrian-oriented retail village à la The Grove, South LA is having a serious moment. Located south of the 10 Freeway and home to communities such as Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, Inglewood, View Heights, Jefferson Park, Leimert Park and View Park (recently added to the National Register of Historic Places), South LA is culturally and ethnically diverse and features a mixture of Spanish Colonial Revival, Ranch, Bungalows, Streamline Moderne, and Mid-Century Modern architecture. You’ll find locals climbing the stairs at Baldwin Park Scenic Overlook, dining at Woody’s Bar-B-Que, Orleans & York (voted Best Po-Boy by LA magazine), and Ackee Bamboo (authentic Jamaican), and attending the annual Leimert Park Village Book Fair, regarded as one of the best in the city.
