Victorians in my 'Hood

Originally spelled Angeleno Heights, Angelino Heights is second only to Bunker Hill as the oldest district in Los Angeles. It is a small quarter situated in  Echo Park. It is noted for it’s amount of Victorian homes. (The house on the left was used in the TV series ‘Charmed’).
Angelino Heights was the City of Los Angeles’ first recognized historic district. Angelino Heights is bordered by Westlake on the south, Echo Park proper on the west and the north-west, and Elysian Park neighborhood on the east and north-east. Its boundaries are roughly Echo Park Avenue on the west, Sunset Boulevard on the north and east, and the Hollywood Freeway on the south. No major thoroughfares run through the district.
