Despite its directly-next-to-Downtown location, Mid-City manages to feel strikingly suburban. For quiet palm-tree promenades, Mid-City is the place to be.
Smaller named areas within the Mid-City neighborhood are Brookside, Crestview, Fremont Place, Lafayette Square, Little Ethiopia, Picfair Village,Wellington Square, and Victoria Park.
Cultural heritage infuses Mid-Wilshire’s museums, music venues, and multitudinous communities. Often referred to as Midtown by LA locals, Mid-Wilshire comprises dozens of neighborhood enclaves, including Koreatown, Little Ethiopia, and contemporary American malls. Walk through first-class farmers’ markets, contemplate art at the LACMA, and marvel at your central location between the Hollywood stars and Downtown’s soaring skyscrapers. Mid-Wilshire’s name says it all—it’s mostly in the middle of everything.
Spanish Revival-style stucco bungalows predominate Mid City. Most were built in the late 1920s or 1930s and have two or three bedrooms. They intermingle with an eclectic assortment of pitch-roofed cottages and tract houses, many painted in rainbow hues or earth tones. Most residences are still single-story, but one also encounters the occasional grandiose two-story replacement for a teardown. A number of remodels, including some second-story additions have been made.
Original houses are replete with details such as hardwood floors, crown moldings, arched doorways, curved ceilings. Many owners have replaced their front lawns with Mediterranean or cactus-and-succulent gardens.
