In its heyday, Mt. Washington was topped by a resort hotel and served by a funicular train line. The hotel was long ago reincarnated as the headquarters of the Self-Realization Fellowship movement and Mt. Washington has become a magnet for artists and other fashionable folk in search of a space and light. The hilly and almost entirely residential neighborhood in northeast Los Angeles is home to LA’s steepest street as well as several strikingly-designed homes by Fung + Blatt, an architectural firm founded in 1990 by Alice Fung and Michael Blatt with a focus on sustainable design. But listen up wannabe Washingtonians, there’s summit you need to know: mountains aren’t just funny, they are hill areas!
