Our association was founded in 1982 as the Sugar Hill Neighborhood Watch
in historic West Adams district, just south and west of downtown, near the Ray
Charles historic Recording Studio (RPM) on Washington Boulevard.
In 2000 we changed our name to West Adams Heights/Sugar Hill
Neighborhood Association to reflect the broader scope of our history. We are
one of the oldest communities in Los Angeles, bordered by the Santa Monica
Freeway (to the South), Washington Blvd. (to the North), Western Ave. (to the
West) and Normandie Ave (to the East). (See map at left.) We share Harvard
Heights HPOZ, one of many in West Adams.
West Adams Heights/Sugar Hill is a historically rich section of West Adams.
According to both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times, it is one of the
best kept secrets in the City of Los Angeles. With its stately old homes that recall
an earlier century, it is a diverse community within the inner city that is continually
changing with Angelo, Latino, Asian and African-American residents. We have a
very active neighborhood association with many projects
