Mount Washington Reviews

Mount Washington is a relatively safe neighborhood, most people are familiar with each other. Neighborhood watch program has met over the years to ensure the safety of civilians. While a nice community, it seems isolated from other busier areas. Access to a vehicle makes it easily accessible, but public transportation is far from reach. A 30 minute walk to a main street.

This is a funky North East Los Angeles area that has lots of natural beauty in the heart of Los Angeles. It has has an array of awesome restaurants and cafes. You are just minutes away from Downtown LA, Glendale, Silver Lake, and many of other up and coming LA neighborhood. It is a perfect spot where you can still find affordable enough housing if you're patiently looking.
The neighborhood has been built up over the recent years. More food places , the park is better , eagle rock and highland park are neighboring cities.
