We're 25 year local residents and 10 year vacation rental cottage hosts (silverlakecottagela at communications) with art, film, music and academic backgrounds. Bev's a renowned 'outside artist' (bevbaz at communications) and lover of local history and Silver Lake/ Hollywood lore. Darrell's an English/Film professor, poet and WGA writer of numerous screenplays (darrellcosta at communications).
When we moved in 25 years ago, we were considered 'urban pioneers' to the local realtors. In time, the beauty of the urban landscape, old Hollywood haunts and red-diaper baby bastion with its music and art pulsing in this alternative to the west side's beachy blandness made being parents to our only son, Devan, a welcome challenge. Now, after riots and fires and searing garage bands making dogs howl, and with the taming of the local gangs, a whole new unique music-health-art-technological minded generation has refined Silver Lake's storied charm.
Beautiful vegetation including divergent tree species and the famous Mexican palms that make LA's trademark. The abundantly interesting and creative younger families moving in and taking pride. The diverse food culture for the carnivore and vegan alike, abounding with great local breweries, pubs and coffee hangouts. We're luckily situated near but far away enough from the complex downtown freeway system which can take you north to the mountains, west to the beach and east to Pasadena and beyond.
In walking distance to the village both on Sunset and on Silverlake Blvd.; as well, walk to 'Silver Lake' itself with jogging, walking and picnicing. Minutes from downtown, bus to UCLA, minutes to Hollywood, 1/2 hour to beach after rush hour, Chinatown, Olvera Street, Disney Hall and abounding with old Hollywood silent film era landmarks. Neighborhood boasts steepest street in country, much steeper than San Francisco's Lombard Street. Silverlake Conservatory of Music by Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers down Sunset a mile. Hollywood sign and famed Griffith Park Observatory with riding trails-- there in minutes! Hollywood Bowl & Universal City; Disneyland a half hour away.
