SILVER LAKE

Built around a city reservoir of the same name, Silver Lake is a diverse and growing neighborhood. Nestled between Atwater Village to the northeast and Echo Park on the southeast, Silver Lake is only five miles from downtown. The history of the neighborhood is evident in the range of architecture and it is a creative and active neighborhood. During the 1930s, Silver Lake was home to Walt Disney's first production studio, now the site of Gelson's Market. The artistic energy is still alive here, giving root to many new independent boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants. The reservoir is a popular destination for exercise - either at the meadow or around the water itself. Sunset Boulevard runs through the southern end of Silver Lake and contributes a wealth of cool shopping, eating, and entertainment.
