Echo Park real estate is varied and includes apartments, single family and multi-family residences. The neighborhood of Angelino Heights is famous for its Victorian homes. Newer urban lofts and developments are starting to pop up throughout the area including along Sunset Boulevard.

Community Life: Echo Park is packed with restaurants old and new, independent retail boutiques, art galleries and nightlife especially in the Sunset Boulevard area. Residents can get a great workout climbing some of Echo Park’s many steep staircases. The Friday evening farmers market always attracts a lively crowd.
