The Wall Street Journal features a story in their Real Estate section about how long distance swimmer Diana Nyad became a home owner in Wilshire Park. The story is a great one…truly a tale that speaks to fate and the importance of being in the right place at the right time.
Nyad’s story is one that we hear over and over in our neighborhood. In an area where people are so invested in preserving the future of these historical homes, every once and awhile sellers are more interested in finding the right fit for their home’s future owner, rather than on maximizing the selling price.
Wilshire Park is bordered by Wilshire Boulevard on the north, Olympic Boulevard on the south, Wilton Place on the east and Crenshaw Boulevard on the west. The area became a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2008 and has a very active neighborhood association – the Wilshire Park Association.
