"A Strip Mall, a Cemetary, and Carmelite Nurses"

The Blanco-Culver Crest neighborhood stretches out just south of West LA College. On its western end there is a rather bland shopping complex with all the usual suspects, such as PetSmart, Starbucks, and Burger King. You will certainly not lack parking in this big strip mall, but it is not the sort of place that will attract anyone from outside of Culver City.

In the midst of this there is one lane, Kinston, that is all 1970’s style boxy apartments, which are just as bland as the stores. To the east of this strip mall that lines Sepulveda, you get a series of surface streets with Ranch style homes all along them, much in the style that is so common in much of the San Fernando Valley to the north.

As you get up into the hills of Culver Crest, the Ranch homes do tend to get nicer of course. Up there, you will also find Marycrest Manor, a nursing facility run by the Carmelite Sisters.

On the southern end of the neighborhood, near the border with Fox Hills there are several condominium complexes and the large sprawling, Holy Cross Cemetary. While yet another Ranch House filled section of neighborhood is located on the southwest corner at Playa Street. El Rincon Elementary is also in this area, an extremely diverse grammar school that is very well regarded for it ability to prepare students for academic success.
