At certain times of the day on the northern edge of Eagle Rock, an enormous boulder projects a bird-shaped shadow resembling an eagle in flight, giving the city its name.

The neighborhood is inhabited by a wide variety of ethnic and socioeconomic groups and the creative class.[3][4] Over the past decade the Eagle Rock and neighboring Highland Park have been experiencing gentrification as young urban professionals have moved from nearby neighborhoods such as Los Feliz and Silver Lake.[4] A core of counter-culture writers, artists and filmmakers has existed in Eagle Rock since the 1920s.[4]

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.

Schools

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.

occidental

Occidental College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college located in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, United States. Founded in 1887 by clergy and members of the Presbyterian Church, it is one of the oldest liberal arts colleges on the West Coast. Occidental College is often referred to as “Oxy” for short.[4] 

Restaurants/Nightlife

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.

Shopping

Just because you move to the ‘burbs’ doesn’t mean you don’t want to look stylish.  Excellent boutiques and vintage shops dot the main streets of Colorado Avenue and Eagle Rock Boulevard. Effortless caftans and wooden clogs seem to be the going mama hipster look out on the streets.
