Los FelizPosted: April 20, 2015
James’ first apartment in Los Angeles was in the neighborhood of Los Feliz, at the foot of Griffith Park. When we first started dating, he spent a lot of time showing me the area and exploring some of his favorite spots. We love going back to visit some of the restaurants there, or to stroll around nearby Barnsdall Park.
When James first moved here, he was awe struck by the views of the Griffith Observatory.
Many local businesses contribute to the area’s charm.
There are quite a few delightful dingbats with names such as “Los Feliz Capri.”
Here is James on the street where he first lived in Los Angeles.
Some of the homes in the neighborhood are quite spectacular, such as this one designed by Lloyd Wright.
At the foot of the hills is the beautiful Art Deco Los Feliz Manor.
As you approach Hollywood, you can see another unexpected apartment building, the Trianon.
John Marshall High School would look right at home on any Ivy League college campus.
Hidden amongst winding roads, you can walk along the narrow Shakespeare Bridge.
Even though James hasn’t lived there for years, walking through the hills of Los Feliz and admiring the views will always bring back fond memories and have a special place in our hearts.
