Below are photos from a recent photo exposé I did on the sprawling, opulent mansions of Hancock Park.
Situated at the geographic heart of Los Angeles, Hancock Park is a primarily Jewish (with a large Orthodox contingent) neighborhood best known for its wide, palm tree-lined streets and large concentration of gracious, 1920's Revival Style mansions, with many sporting various Spanish, Mission, and Tudor influences and styles. A fan of the Great Gatbsy (thanks, LAUSD!), the indulgent, ostentatious lifestyle of the Roaring 20's looms large in my imagination, something, IMO, partially reflected in my fascination with 1920's mansion neighborhoods.
