Palms is a fairly quiet, West Los Angeles community consisting mostly of small to medium sized apartment buildings with an ethnically diverse mix of professionals and families. It is located between Culver City, Mar Vista, Century City and Cheviot Hills. The Metro stop at the Palms/Exposition/National intersection is a convenient transportation option for heading west to Santa Monica or east to Downtown L.A. and beyond. There are some buildings where you can still find rent control, if anyone will ever move out. Many new residential buildings and businesses have popped up in Palms since 2013. I recently went to a community event to paint a large mural along Overland Avenue where many of the local residents came out to help. The Palms Neighborhood Council was pleasantly surprised with the turnout and the event finished hours before expected! The longer I live in Palms, the more I love the neighborhood and I do not plan on leaving anytime soon.
The neighborhood is very residential, and it is very calm and quiet. There are three public schools in its parameter and its close to the expo line for easy access to the beach or downtown LA. It is a little pricey only because there has been so much investment in the area that it has raised the cost of living, and driven out many people.
I love the area for its close proximity (15-20 mins) to anywhere you’d want to go in Los Angeles. The streets are safe and clean and the people are friendly and welcoming. The population is very diverse with young professional millennials from all races and older local population. The price of real state is increasing fast due to the new Expo metro line and the newly constructed buildings around it. You will soon not be able to afford housing here. Enjoy it while you can. It’s heaven on earth - to me at least.
