"Jolson, the Berlin Wall, and Westfield Mall"

With virtually no single-family homes in the entire neighborhood, Fox Hills is definitely the second most prominent commercial area in Culver City, second only to the Downtown area. The biggest draw in the area is perhaps the newly renovated Westfield (formerly the Fox Hills Mall), whose new décor and many events are sure to make it one of the most popular malls in the area.

Sprawling out to the east and south of the mall are a series of office parks, each with its own design, but all having the same kinds of bland exteriors with tinted windows that really give you no sense if anyone is busily working within, which is probably one of the draws of such windows.

One of the few spots in the neighborhood where you can find a place to live is on the eastern border where some three story apartment buildings crop up. Apartments in Fox Hills are fairly expensive, in large part because of the competition from both the nearby college and the cleanliness and order of the area: a two bedroom, for instance is libel to run upwards of $2K in most case.

On the southwestern corner of Fox Hills you come across Hillside Memorial Park, a Jewish burial site that works in cooperation with LA Temples and that has several Hollywood graves. Jack Benny, Milton Berle, and Al Jolson are all entombed here for example. It is actually quite a lovely facility with its long step waterfall descending from what looks like a Greek open air temple. Quite magnificent and worth the visit for Hollywood Historians, lover of Jewish culture and architecture buffs.

Right by this magnificent structure is Fox Hills Park, a great neighborhood green space serving the residents of the nearby apartments and condominiums with it tennis courts soccer fields, short hiking trails and kid’s play area.

On the northern end of the neighborhood, aside from even more office space, is a sort of educational ghetto, shared by the for profit University of Phoenix, a computer training college, and the relatively well-regarded Antioch University. Don’t expect a campus atmosphere at these colleges however, since the main focus of all three is in training business professionals. The average student is much more likely to be wearing a suit and tie than jeans and clogs.

In is also in this area that you will find the Wende Museum of the Cold War and Kindred Hospital. The museum is one of the lesser known sites in LA, with just three or four exhibition rooms and its most famous artifact being part of the Berlin Wall that it had shipped and rebuilt. The real draw of scholars is the archives of documents from Soviet controlled East Berlin. It is a real treasure for historians.

Kindred hospital is also well-regarded among locals.
