If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a neighbourhood where you may accidentally become an extra in a low-budget indie film while walking your child to kindergarten, Echo Park is the right place. The culturally diverse neighbourhood has become known for its trendy local businesses, as well as its popularity with artists, musicians and creatives. Although it’d arguably always been a place for artists and creatives. It’s a beautiful mix of diversity—culturally, socio economically, even the landscape and architecture is diverse. Victorian-era homes and panoramic views of the DTLA skyline, it is also packed with Art Deco, Craftsman, and Period Revival homes.
Known for being culturally forward and perpetually young at heart, it is at the same time one of the oldest districts in the city of Los Angeles.
