Harvard Heights Reviews

2 reviews
Harvard Heights is a very diverse community, very inclusive, with a really active neighborhood association, beautiful craftsman houses. It is a historic neighborhood, protected by its HPOZ status. Close to downtown, USC and freeways. We have lived in many different neighborhoods in LA but never felt this sense if neighborhood and community before. We have strong friendships with many of our neighbors, something that is rare in LA.

I like how calm and quite it is. But at the same time the community is friendly and gets along well.
