A small, historic and wealthy urban neighborhood in Central Los Angeles, California. It is highly diverse in ethnic makeup, with a population older and better-educated than the city norm. Many notable Los Angeles residents have lived in Windsor Square, and it is the site of the Getty House, the official residence of the mayor of the city.
The English flavor is very much alive and the street names reflect this with Irving, Windsor and Plymouth. The original “Square” ran from Wilshire Boulevard to Third Street, and from Plymouth Blvd. to Irving Blvd and was later expanded to the north, east, and west. Today, Windsor Square runs from Wilshire to Beverly Boulevards, and from Arden Boulevard to Van Ness Avenue. This is inclusive of the one-block strip of Larchmont Village, between First Street and Beverly Boulevard.
Windsor Square is often mistakenly called ‘Hancock Park,’ even by long-time residents. But in fact, Hancock Park is immediately to the west. Windsor Square’s homes have the same historic value as in Hancock Park, but most of the homes are built on bigger lots.
