District B - Los Feliz Square
With the exclusive Laughlin Park community at one corner and Thai Town North at another, District B is an eclectic mix of businesses, residences, and cultures. It is also the most populous district in Los Feliz. In the 1920’s, a large concentration of multi-unit buildings and garden apartment complexes were constructed here, making this area an affordable option for newcomers to Los Angeles at that time.
District B is at the northernmost point of LA’s busy Western Avenue, which, appropriately enough, serves as our western border, delineating Los Feliz from Hollywood. District B is also bordered by Hollywood Boulevard to the south, Vermont Boulevard to the east, and Los Feliz Boulevard to the north.
District B is a melting pot of Armenian, Thai, and Korean enclaves, among others, and is home to the schools, churches, and associations serving this array of international communities. Barnsdall Art Park, a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, is a sloping green space nestled on Olive Hill at the southside of District B. The park centers on the Hollyhock House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Other notable points of interest include a Buddhist temple and the John Sowden House, also known as the “Jaws House” due to the façade’s resemblance to the open mouth of a shark. Diverse independently owned shops, bakeries, bars, and restaurants line Hollywood Boulevard in this district, and many of the families that run them live nearby.
