Welcome to Mt. Washington

 
Perched in the San Rafael Hills of Northeast Los Angeles, 1.85-square-mile Mt. Washington is a bucolic residential neighborhood known for its high-achieving elementary school, bohemian residents, and the Southwest Museum. Widely considered the most affluent area on the Eastside, Mt. Washington offers mountain, valley, and ocean views, along with homes ranging in style from Craftsman bungalows and tree house cabins to Hollywood Hills-style Mid-century Modern homes (A. Quincy Jones’ Pilot House and John Lautner’s Mauer House are both located here). Take in some nature at the 35-acre Elyria Canyon, hit La Abeja for the best Mexican brunch in the area, and entertain the kids by driving down Mt. Washington’s Eldred Street, located between Avenue 50 and Cross Avenue, one of the three steepest streets in LA. Nearby Highland Park and Eagle Rock offer plenty of amusement if it gets too quiet on some evenings.
