A once grim community formerly notorious for being ridden with crime, the neighborhood known as the Yucca Corridor is now a local hotspot for young professionals, artists, musicians, and actors. Bound together by major L.A. streets like North Highland Avenue, Franklin Avenue, Vine Street and Hollywood Boulevard, the Yucca Corridor is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Los Angeles for young singles just starting their careers. Known as the “Gateway to Hollywood” the Yucca Corridor experienced decades of steep decline that nearly destroyed the neighborhood completely. By 1993 the 18th Street Gang dominated control of the community, even pulling guns on neighborhood volunteers attempting to clean up graffitied walls. Residents took matters into their own hands after the 1994 episode of Rodney King’s beating gave them the idea to protect the community with rooftop cameras focused on sidewalks. Community members also affixed posters on walls throughout the neighborhood blaring the message, “Buy Drugs, Go to Jail”. The community’s efforts led to nearly 500 arrests by narcotics officers and began the neighborhood’s road to recovery.
Today the Yucca Corridor is known for being one of the places for young people to live in Los Angeles. Near some of the best things to do in Los Angeles, the Yucca Corridor is a great place to head out and experience local spots like The Broad, Grand Central Market, Silver Lake Stairs, Neptune’s Net, the Hollywood Bowl, Eaton Canyon Falls, Walt Disney Concert Hall, OUR Skyspace LA, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Philip Mershon’s Felix in Hollywood Tour, California Science Center, Temescal Gateway Park, or of course the iconic Hollywood Sign.
