Los Feliz, like its name suggests, is a happy place to live. Resting just below the southern slopes of Griffith Park, the cozy yet affluent hamlet exudes an appealing small town vibe. Here, you’ll find tree-lined streets, the Greek Theatre, one of Los Angeles’ most walkable commercial district known as Los Feliz Village, and some of the most sought after real estate in the world. Now a popular celebrity enclave, Los Feliz features jaw-dropping architectural residences from renowned architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Wallace Neff, Gregory Ain, and R.M. Schindler, attracting chic and creative professionals and Hollywood entertainers. Their restaurant scene attracts attention from all over Southern California.
Initially known as Rancho Los Feliz, the region was granted to Corporal José Vicente Feliz prior to California becoming a state. An adobe house built by his successors in the 1830s still stands on Crystal Springs Drive in Griffith Park, named after Griffith J. Griffiths, another prominent figure in Los Feliz history. Griffiths, a mining and real estate magnate, purchased a large section of the Rancho and consequently donated most of it to the city of Los Angeles to be used as a park. Today, Griffith Park with its many trails, Griffith Observatory and Zoo, is one of the largest urban parks in the nation, five times the size of New York City’s Central Park. Other parts of the land were later developed and became the communities of Los Feliz and Silver Lake. Los Feliz is also the birthplace of Walt Disney Studios.
