Echo Park Real Estate Market Overview

If Silver Lake is where hipsters go to settle down, Echo Park is where they're born. It's young and buzzing with the creative verve of the city - taking the lion's share of vegan eateries, grungy music venues, and bungalows filled with roommates in bands or indie fashion designers. In the center of it, geographically, is Echo Park Lake, newly renovated and a real east side treasure with, well, a lake, ...beautiful native landscaping, and pedal boats. The park represents a rapid rebirth for this part of town, but its former charms are still here in the form of the occasional family-run Mexican bakery or fruit carts, the city equivalent of a desert oasis.View more
