Silver Lake

East of Hollywood, this hilly, mostly residential neighborhood sits southeast of Los Feliz and northwest of Echo Park. Regarded as a bohemian enclave since the 1930s, it was the site of the first large film studio built by Walt Disney. With its thriving gay community, Silver Lake has hip stores and happening restaurants along its stretch of Sunset Boulevard.
