Eagle Rock · Glen Park

Where to live in LA, if you love Glen Park

tmg-gift_guide_variable_2x7FLICKR/JAR[O]

Eagle Rock maintains a low-key vibe despite its soaring accolades as northeast LA’s most lavishly rooted-in-bohemia neighborhoods. Jukeboxes still jam in the neighborhood’s returned-to-trendy diners and vinyl still spins in its used bookstores. This imperceptibly discerning destination is so copacetic, you’ll forget you’re in the movie-making capital of the nation until you see a film crew along its quintessentially quaint main boulevards. Take five, hike to the top of its eponymous rock, and breathe in crisp nostalgia.

See how Glen Park and Eagle Rock measure up to each other:

Glen Park

A lovely residential neighborhood “no one” ever goes to.

Bar and restaurant scene:

Glen Park isn’t known for its bustling restaurant scene, but there’s actually more there than you’d think. Le P’tit Laurent is a popular French spot, the Cheese Boutique is the place to go for cheese and sandwiches, and Glen Park Station is a good local bar with a fireplace and TVs for watching the game.

Bar and restaurant scene:

Easily one of the most underrated food and drink spots in LA — you can get all up in Eagle Rock Brewery here, as well little-known gems like Dave’s Chillin’-n-Grillin’ (and not to mention All Star Lanes, a bowling alley that also rocks karaoke).

Public transit situation:

Glen Park BART station, J-Church, and a couple of bus lines

Transportation situation:

It’s easy to hit up the 2, which can easily get you to the 134, 5, and 210 freeways.

Quote from a resident:

“Don’t move here. It’s a beautiful residential neighborhood with access to an amazing recreation area and a decent commercial village. We want to keep it that way! Stay in the Marina where you belong.” – Jimmy V.

Quote from a resident:

“I honestly don’t know why people don’t ever talk about Eagle Rock as one of the best neighborhoods in LA. We’ve got everything.”

 

WHERE TO GET WORK DONE

Swork

Coffee. People. Love. It’s the world’s first interactive coffee bar and so much more. Swork is a late night hangout with a wireless vibe, a morning touchstone for collective creativity and a bastion of sanity in a mother’s otherwise hectic day.
