I live in Echo Park and while it's true that there are Gangs here, its far from dangerous like it used to. I bought a house here in 2007. I think there are other things far more annoying around here the gangs. Not to sound like a racist but the mostly spanish community here in EP has zero respect for volume, keeping the streets clean, Dogs will bark all night long, they park where ever they want even tho they are not supposed to and worse of it is the Tagging. My house was tagged 3 times back to back last year. Thankfully the city will pay for it to have it removed.

I would recommend looking/getting into the silverlake area before looking for property in EP.

Love Echo Park. One of my fav. places. I live on the border of Silver Lake and Echo Park. If you're ever in town, go to Lot 1 (restaurant). GREAT place to eat. A lot of musicians/artist live in echo park. Trendy area with a mix of culture.

If you would like to know more about homes available in the area, please give me a call.

It is safe, unless you are a gang member. They only shoot each other on occasion.
It has a hip flavor close to Silverlake and Elysian Heights as well. Check the for school ratings.
The main question is what area of echo park? That has a lot of factors. I used to live there and I always felt safe, my brother lived there with his girlfriend for 8 years while attending law school. Give me a call, I can tell you much more. 310-689-9904

I'd like to help answer your question, but I need more info. Is this a home you own and wish to sell, or are you thinking of purchasing in this area? Are you talking about a condo, a townhome, or a single family residence? How large is the home, what is the condition, and the year it was built? I have other questions as well. If you call me at 310-808-3739 or email me I can better help you.
