Park Mesa Just south of Vernon, Park Mesa rests below Leimert Park, but is complete with a surprising wealth of craftsman and traditional style homes dotted with palm tree-lined streets.

Construction is already underway for the new Metro rail running down Crenshaw which will eventually connect at Florence Blvd. to the airport.

Jefferson Park The Jefferson Park neighborhood is perhaps one of the City’s best examples of the remainder of the street-car era and influx of the craftsman era. Many of the single-story bungalows still maintain their original design and charm, making the many streets of this vast district instantly charming. A significant number of Jefferson Park houses were built using prefabricated kits or plan books produced by the likes of Sears and Pacific Ready-Cut Homes. Jefferson Park found instant favor with African American and Japanese American families having survived most of the racial discrimination set in from the 40s.  And while the neighborhood today is more diverse, many of the business and institutions along Adams and Jefferson Boulevards and Western Avenue, within the HPOZ, reflect the contributions of these cultures to the community.
