    Coolest neighborhood in the WORLD? Yep… that’s what TimeOut says. Oxy is nestled on the border between the Eagle Rock and Highland Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles. You’ll be steps from York Boulevard, with its vegan cafes, live music, third wave coffee houses, handsome cocktail spots, vintage vinyl shops, and buzzing food truck scene. Catch the Gold Line and explore all of LA… from sandy beaches and canyon hiking trails, to world-class museums and shopping galore. Still want more? How about scuba diving off Catalina Island or a weekend trip to Joshua Tree National Monument (1.5 hours away)? Los Angeles awaits you.
