West Adams is an historic neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles. It is one of the northernmost districts in the South LA region, bordering Jefferson Park in the east, Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw in the south, Palms
in the west, and Mid-City in the north. West Adams is peppered with historically preserved architecture from as early as the 1880's; homes and other buildings persist from nearly every architectural era over the past 150 years, from Victorian to Gothic Revival to Neoclassical—you name it.
Today, West Adams residents describe their neighborhood as conveniently accessible and rich in community spirit. Not only is West Adams adjacent to or within striking distance of such major LA arteries as the 10 freeway, Venice Blvd., La Cienega Blvd., and the 110 freeway, but recent Metro expansions have also added three separate light rail stations in the neighborhood, rendering it an ideal place from which to commute, even for Angelenos without cars.
