Echo Park is a wonderful neighborhood for those who enjoy social activities and have an interest in living closely to almost all the necessary places for a fun and simple life. A small strip on Mohawk street contains some of the greatest restaurants and cafes such as The Habit Burger Grill, Chipotle, and Starbucks Reserve; and just a walk across the street would be Tierra Mia Cafe right by the local public library where one may enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book. I would essentially describe Echo Park as a typical LA area, many people who live around enjoy visiting the local park that resides in the center of the neighborhood for a walk and relish the view of Downtown Los Angeles.

I first moved here in 1988. Back then I would not walk in the park. I returned to Echo Park in 2016 to find only one of my neighbors still lived on my block. Parking has become harder but everything else a little nicer. We have a Lassens and Walgreens where there used to be a Pioneer market. On Fridays a farmers market and food trucks line the streets. It has become a neighborhood of musicians and artist and now tech and the moderately familiar actors. The proximity to downtown and Hollywood and the valley are convenience with Uber and Lyft owning a car is optional. There are rumblings about a Trader Joes coming and lets not forget the Dodgers! What is not to love. The steps in Echo Park should be the next restoration project.
This is just home to me, but its a great location, lots of good food and tons of bars! This is hipster central....combined with Silverlake. Echo Park lake is amazing for hanging out and having a couple beers. Rents are high now, but its worth it.
