Summary: Glassell Park and Cypress Park, mostly Los Angeles, 90065 & 90039, are two of the last remaining mostly Latino neighborhoods in Northeast LA. Median prices range from 200k-400k. These neighborhoods are rapidly changing, especially with the restoration of countless character homes in the past few years.
Glassell Park, like Mt. Washington, is very hilly. It was named for attorney Andrew Glassell in the 1800s when he won the land in a lawsuit. Development began in early 1900s and again in the 1950s when many modernist homes were built. As a result, like Mt. Washington, Glassell Park has a varied collection of homes spanning from classic to very modern.
Cypress Park, directly south of Glassell Park, is one of the oldest communities in Los Angeles and predates Highland Park by nearly 3 years. This neighborhood is also very popular for its nest of character homes and proximity to DTLA.
