Around Eagle Rock

The closer one is to York Boulevard, the closer they are to the hip crowd, with the real estate prices and congestion to accompany it. To the north along Colorado Boulevard, it tends to be quieter but still has plenty of commuting traffic that cuts through it. Right in the middle of the neighborhood you'll find the most housing and quieter surroundings, provided you avoid living next to the high school or college. On the other hand, those who live on the far west or far east of neighborhood like to point out their surprisingly fast commute into the city.

It seems like every restaurant in Eagle Rock has a famous specialty. There's the upscale fast food burgers at Oinkster, the duck carnitas at CaCao Mexicatessen, and street cart doner fries at Spitz. In between the trendy places that keep popping up around town, Eagle Rock has plenty of classic Los Angeles staples from vintage donut shops to family-style Mexican restaurants.

Expect crowded smoothie and coffee shops anywhere near Occidental College, but the campus atmosphere does not permeate the whole neighborhood. This is a relaxed neighborhood where young families take the kids with them to upscale brewpubs and locals spend hours at the corner pizza shop. Though the neighborhood is exceptionally walkable, most residents travel by car.

Happy hours reign supreme in Eagle Rock. Grab a draft beer or cocktail at a casual pub and, if you don't end up filling up on fancy bar snacks, there's probably a fantastic restaurant next door. Locals will usually send you to Casa Bianca for old-school Italian, but there's always a new place grabbing attention from the biggest LA food critics. Live music and theater productions are usually going on any day of the week.

You can't go wrong with brunch at one of the York Boulevard mainstays. Stroll through the vintage thrift stores or arts-and-crafts hotspots or head up to Colorado Boulevard for more mainstream shopping. Near the mall you'll find plenty of great sommelier-approved wine shops and fancy home goods stores. In between Eagle Rock and Pasadena, you'll find plenty of wonderful green spaces to relax while enjoying views of Sierra Madre.
