Lincoln Heights has been my home for as long as I can remember. North Broadway is a nice little commercial area with different small businesses as well as large ones. Some of the houses around here are also nice to look at. There is a small chapel on workman street that is used by the Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program to host meetings for high school students to get involved in the community. Many students from different high schools gather there to hang out, eat, play games, and sign up for community service events. For the most part, I feel safe in my family's apartment, but it's not safe to walk around alone. Especially at night. It's not as dangerous as other areas of L.A., but I always keep a lookout. This neighborhood has a bad reputation due to being populated by low-income minorities.

Lived here my whole life, and am so open to many things! Though the area is predominately Latino, there are also Asians, Caucasians, and African-Americans and so I love the diversity. There's a lot of good small eats around here. Instead of gentrifying the area, I wish they would clean the area more because it's dirty and smells.
Lincoln Heights a gem to the city of Los Angeles. There is history from the Chicano Movement, Lincoln Park Ostrich Zoo, and a diverse community. North Broadway is the heart of Lincoln Heights. A nice stroll to visit boutique shops have delicious refreshments from Rico Tejunio Reyes, and great convenient stores.
