Probably the most diverse of the Eastside hoods with artists, entrepreneurs, and Dodger Blue calling it home. Sunset Blvd and Echo Park Ave are the lifelines — offering everything from homemade tamales to tattoos, organic produce to prize-winning pizza. Enjoy the lilies while strolling around the lake, hike along one of the many trails in Elysian Park, get your cardio going on the Berkeley staircase, or take in a game at Chavez Ravine. We’re down with a beer and peanuts at Gold Room, window shopping along the Sunset, and just about anything on the menu at Ostrich Farm. Watch out for cyclists blazing down Sunset on their fixies. Most homes are priced from the high $800s to $2M+.
