About Los Feliz
Nestled next to Griffith Park, Los Feliz is an affluent community in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. Named after its colonial Spanish-Mexican land grantee José Vicente Feliz, it’s surrounded by Atwater Village and Silver Lake. Los Feliz village is home or in proximity to numerous restaurants and bars. Mickey Mouse was even born in Los Feliz, as Walt Disney drew his first image of the famous character in his uncle’s garage located on Kingswell Avenue. The population is known for being highly educated and boasts many great public schools. With a great location and endless amenities, Los Feliz truly has something for everyone.
Silver Lake is a trendy residential and commercial neighborhood in Central Los Angeles, located next to Atwater Village and East Hollywood, and on the northwest by Los Feliz. It’s known for its restaurant, clubs, and weekly art walks. Walt Disney’s first studio was actually built here. The population is diverse and well educated. Silver Lake was named for Water Board Commissioner Herman Silver, who was instrumental in the creation of the Silver Lake Reservoir, located within the neighborhood.
About Glassell Park
Glassell Park is hugged by the I-5 to the west and the Glendale freeway to the North. In 1907, Andrew Glassell received the part of Rancho San Rafael that would later become Glassell Park. It’s a diverse neighborhood bordered by Atwater Village, Eagle Rock and Glendale. Lately it’s taken on community characteristics of Los Feliz and Echo Park -- a more gentrified and diverse neighborhood burgeoning into something unique and wonderful.
About Eagle Rock
Unsurprisingly, yet completely fittingly -- it’s named after a large rock resembling a soaring eagle. A bit of a secluded valley of waving hills and windy roads, it’s nestled between Glendale, Highland Park and Glassell Park in northeastern Los Angeles. Eagle Rock still preserves the charm of historic architecture with Craftsmen, Georgian, Streamline Moderne, Art Deco and Mission Revival homes that capture the beauty and history of bygone years.
Quickly becoming the place to be. Los Angeles’ central business district has seen a drastic makeover in recent years becoming an increasingly hip and affluent neighborhood. The prospects of the future may soon equal the past. During its heyday in the 1920’s it was known as the “Wall Street of the West.” More recently the area has been revitalized by the construction of the Staples Center, Nokia Theater, and an additional $1.8 billion dollars in real estate development. From loft living to nuanced neighborhoods, downtown has something great to offer everyone.
Just north of Pasadena, Altadena provides an escape from the big city atmosphere of Los Angeles. It’s renowned for Christmas Tree Lane -- a holiday attraction since 1920 on the strip of Santa Rosa avenue adorned with Christmas lights; and it’s one of the oldest venues of its kind in the world. Mount Lowe Railway, now a historical sight, was once used to transport passengers through the scenic route to the San Gabriel Mountains.
Nestled above Griffith Park, the third largest city in Los Angeles, Glendale lies at the east end of the San Fernando Valley. The city is bordered by Sun Valley to the north; Burbank and Griffith Park to the west; Pasadena to the east, and Los Feliz to the south. Bob’s Big Boy actually opened their first location here in 1936. Known for its safety, Glendale maintains its own police department, employing more officers than any other city in Los Angeles. It also has a wide selection of malls, shops, and restaurants.
