"Forgettable Except for the Hospital"

Stretching out just to the west of 580, the Lynn/Highland park neighborhood is most famous for being home to Highland Hospital, which is at its eastern edge. Highland Park Hospital is not only the leading trauma center in Alameda County, it is also an excellent teaching hospital.

The neighborhood surrounding the hospital is a largely working class neighborhood with lots of California bungalows and a few other structures. The neighborhood is on a slight incline, though not quite enough to offer much of a view.

There are some businesses here like a taquarria and a handful of auto repair places, but they are largely forgettable.

This, like many Oakland neighborhoods, is a relatively dangerous neighborhood, with a crime rate that is three times higher than the national average.
