Eagle Rock has become a magnet for families. The running joke is that Eagle Rock is ‘where Silverlake people go when they get pregnant’. The reasons are many: great architecture, schools, restaurants and proximity. It offers a lot of the stuff that buyers are seeking: excellent restaurants, preschools, a cheesemonger and good vintage shopping, hiking, and a small town feel. It just makes sense for young couples and families looking for a small taste of suburbia with an edge. For all these reasons 2014 Redfin named it the Second Best Neighborhood in America in 2014.
One of the reasons Eagle Rock has become so hot are the highly ranked schools. There are 3 elementary schools and all are above average for LAUSD and a highly ranked high school high school (a rare find indeed in LA) : Delevan Elementary, Dahlia Heights Elementary, and Eagle Rock Elementary and Eagle Rock High School.

If you build it they will come! The recent gentrification has brought the usual services that urban professionals desire. Old and new restaurants offer residents a lot of great choices for a good meal or a fun night out.
