A little slice of Bungalow Heaven




The American Planning Association this week named Bungalow Heaven among
its list of America’s Top 10 Great Places
. It’s the only neighborhood in California on this year’s list.

Julianna Delgado, president of the Bungalow Heaven Neighborhood Association, tells the Pasadena Star-News:

“It was really quite stunning when we found out we’d made the finals, and I actually cried when I heard the news.”

Most of the Arts and Crafts bungalows in the neighborhood were built between 1905-1920. With more than 1,000 historic homes in the neighborhood, it’s Pasadena’s largest historic district, and it was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places
last year.

We combed through the archives to find some fav photos from the landmark district. All the photos are from 2006, save for the superhero in the window from 2002. Gotta relish the personality that comes through in the detail shots — it’s not the devil in there; just a little slice of (Bungalow) Heaven.
