Check out the LA Times Echo Park neighborhood profile.
Echo Park enjoys a rich history, including being the home to Los Angeles’ first film studios. From 1909 through the 1920s most silent films were made in one of the studios along what is today Glendale Boulevard. Echo Park is broken into two areas Angelino Heights and Elysian Heights. Angelino Heights’ architecture almost has a San Francisco feel with its hills, Victorian bungalows and larger homes. Today, Echo Park is a diverse community with a strong Latino heritage. Aside from being home to Dodger Stadium and close to downtown, Echo Park has also become a mecca for hipsters. With trendy restaurants, eclectic boutiques and art galleries, Echo Park also offers better home values than the other nearby hipster-friendly areas of Silver Lake and Los Feliz.
