Eagle Rock is a neighborhood of Northeast Los Angeles in the San Rafael Hills, Los Angeles County, California. It sits just west of Pasadena, home of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl.
Eagle Rock is named after a large rock outcropping, resembling an eagle with its wings outstretched. The land was part of the Rancho San Rafael under Spanish and Mexican governorship. It was divided into parcels in 1870. It became a city in 1911 and joined Los Angeles in 1923.
The real estate website Redfin list of "Hottest Neighborhoods of 2014," and listed Eagle Rock as No.2 in America.
Last year Conde Nast Traveler named York Boulevard, which runs between Eagle Rock and Highland Park, "L.A.'s Coolest Street.”
Like its Eastside neighbors Highland Park and Silver Lake, Eagle Rock exudes eclectic charm and a quirky mix of the old and the new. Bohemian youth, urban homesteaders, Occidental College students and multigenerational families converge in this small-town stretch of northeastern LA.
The well-trafficked Colorado and Eagle Rock Boulevards are lined with specialty clothing stores, unique markets, antique crafts shops and enough restaurants and bars to keep you satisfied for days.
The neighborhood is inhabited by a wide variety of ethnic and socioeconomic groups and the creative class. Over the past decade the Eagle Rock and neighboring Highland Park have been experiencing gentrification as young urban professionals have moved from nearby neighborhoods such as Los Feliz and Silver Lake. A core of counter-culture writers, artists and filmmakers has existed in Eagle Rock since the 1920s.
