Lincoln Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Panoramic views of Los Angeles drew the wealthy to Lincoln Heights starting in the 1830s, making Lincoln Heights the oldest Los Angeles, California neighborhood. The wealthy residents built Victorian mansions on bluffs along the Los Angeles River and enjoyed the amazing views until industry moved in — plants built along the river chased the wealthy residents out. Luckily, many of the Victorian homes have been preserved in this densely populated neighborhood.
Rich in history and diversity, Lincoln Heights today is one of the most populated neighborhoods in LA with over 80,000 living here. North Broadway is the main shopping district with several grocery stores, businesses, and restaurants. California State University-Los Angeles is located just east of Lincoln Heights. The Lincoln Park Recreation Center offers residents a fishing lake, boathouse, gym, pool, auditorium, carousel, tennis courts, ball fields, a senior center, and playgrounds.
