Silver Lake is a safe neighborhood filled with caring and active neighbors. The pros are that Silver Lake has some amazing coffee shops and cafes. Also there is a weekly farmer's market, and every summer there are free outdoor movies on Sunset Blvd. The Cons would have to be the lack of parking, traffic, and expensive rent.

I love Silver Lake! It has the cutest trendiest place. There are so many fun little coffee shops to sit and talk to friends. Also to catch up on some work.
