Hello, my partner and I are a hispanic couple thinking of purchasing a home in the Northeast Los Angeles, and we are looking for an affordable, and gay friendly neighborhood We are wondering mostly about Monterey Hills, since it is tucked away in the hills yet close to the city. I would like to know if gay couples live in the area and if it is safe for kids. We don't mind driving through El Sereno or Lincoln Heights, but have noticed that it is a little rough in those neighborhoods. We are very open minded people, love the environment, and love all cultures.

I have lived across the street from Monterey hill for 20 years, and I don't ever remember seeing kids in Monterey hills.
There may be some, but I have never seen any.
For the most part, the hills is a community of retired, semi retired, and medium upper class working folks.
Great area,nice and quiet.
There are homes for sale ajacent too Monterey hills, on nice residential streets, if you aren't looking for a condo, which is what Monterey hills is.
As for gays in the area.
For sure they are scattered through out the northeast.
Monterey hills, and the village of Hermon just west of the hills (that's where I live) are very open and friendly to all who live here.
As for traveling through Lincoln Heights, as long as you stay on main streets there shouldn't be any problems.
El Sereno for the most part isn't all that bad.
Any way, this is a great area to call home.
Hope you'll be doing that soon.

What about Montecito Heights? I've met a bunch of couples (albeit, straight) who lived there who were either pregnant or had just had a baby. I just put an offer on a house up there. It's beautiful! And not too bad, price-wise.

Thanks for your input Calguy! I guess the house is part of El Sereno, near Monterey Rd. Kids aren't in the plans for a while so it's not a big issue for now. Any others wling to
share would be kindly appreciated!

Jeez, I forgot all about Montecito Heights and I used to LIVE there..! There are families up there, as well as down the Rose Hills side. MH is really nice- lots of diverse people up there and they have a lot of involved neighbors. We almost bought our house up there, but a sweet deal came along in Mt Washington- plus we wanted to live by the planned train station. Monterey runs right up against MH.
