Houzz TV: In Love With Echo Park Style
For David Greening, it was love at first sight when he saw the unique oval arch and view of the downtown skyline from this one-bedroom apartment in Angelino Heights. As the oldest surviving suburb of Victorian-era Los Angeles, Angelino Heights is a hidden pocket of Victorian mansions, Craftsman bungalows and Spanish revival buildings. It is the city’s first historic preservation zone and also part of the greater Echo Park district, one of the last east-side hipster havens to maintain its roots. The residents are a mix of families, musicians, designers, film people and even old money. This diverse cultural scene prompted Greening, a paralegal who moonlights as a musician and an entrepreneur, to migrate from the mid-Wilshire district and make Echo Park his home.
