We see major changes in store for this part of the city, especially over the next generation. We hope that you enjoy this article about this part of Los Angeles and as part of a series on the city’s long history and Future.
Eagle Rock Has More Stuff than Just for Young People
This part of the city is in Northeast Los Angeles and named after a rock outcropping that looks like an eagle with its wings outstretched. Well outside the city center, it has a different feel from many other parts of the city. This and part attracted many young people looking to make a living in and around the city but not wanting to live downtown.
In addition this area became a key part of the hippie movement in the 1960s. It also served as a major part of filmmaking in the Greater Los Angeles area. Despite having just 34,000 people Eagle Rock has a disproportionate influence on Los Angeles county.
LA Weekly ranked it as one of America’s “Hottest Neighborhoods.” All of this shows that there might be big changes in store for this area and the northern part of Los Angeles County. We look forward to reading more about the coming changes and where they lead.
