Eagle Rock is an ethnically diverse neighborhood in the easternmost territory of the City of Los Angeles. It borders the LA neighborhoods of Highland Park
, Mount Washington, and Glassell Park in the south, and the “Verdugo” cities of Glendale
in the north. Residents of Eagle Rock profess to enjoy both a small-town feel and a central location; indeed, it affords easy access to the mega-malls of Glendale, the charming culture of Pasadena, the hipster paradise of Los Feliz
, and the up-and-coming bar scene of Downtown Los Angeles
Eagle Rock itself is considered a great place for foodies, with lots of locally owned holes-in-the-wall. Like Silver Lake, Eagle Rock has been on an upward trend for years and is rapidly becoming a highly sought-after locale for young folks and families alike. It is also worth noting that Occidental College infuses the city's character with a bit of youth and bustle. Primary arteries: Colorado and Eagle Rock Blvds., as well as the 2 and 134 freeways.
