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.

There are a number things to like in Lincoln Heights. The food is amazing, everything is in close proximity, and there are many parks within walking distance. The reason why Lincoln Heights is not a desirable place to live is because of the poor living conditions and the amount of danger at every corner. I have gone through many sleepless nights because of police helicopter flying around my house and sirens going off. The sounds of gunshots during the night is frightening. There are many homeless people and gang members roaming the streets. The unsightly aspect of Lincoln Heights is the amount of trash and graffiti on every street corner and building. Lincoln Heights is not the most desirable place to live, but it gets the job done for most low income families including myself.
Lincoln Heights are one of the most diverse communities in the Los Angeles area. It is a melting pot of people and cultures. However, there are many problems with the Lincoln Heights neighborhood. Homeless rates had increase, poor sanitation, and poor law enforcements. What I like to see change is the sanitation and more housing for the homeless. I've lived in Lincoln Heights for over 10 years now and this is the worst I've seen so far.
