Hancock Park is Beautiful

New, 27 comments

Is Hancock Park the most beautiful neighborhood in Los Angeles? Travel + Leisure must think so, because it's the only LA neighborhood to make their list of America's Most Beautiful Neighborhoods. The copy: "The landmarked Hollywood sign is visible from many streets, where the range of styles and fine construction evoke the boom days of the 1920s. Case in point: the Queen Anne–style Higgins-Verbeck-Hirsch House, at 637 South Lucerne, was trucked here in June 1924—while 100 high-society guests partied inside. Stars such as Nat King Cole, Kathy Bates, and Patricia Heaton have helped the community keep its luster despite a westward march of real estate trendiness." [Travel + Leisure]
