Silver Lake Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Mickey Mouse was born here in 1928. The silent movie industry began here. And the Keystone Cops gave chase along the streets — here, in Silver Lake. This diverse community in Los Angeles, California is dynamic, colorful, arty, and historical. Tucked away in the steep hills three miles east of Hollywood and four miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, Silver Lake contains famous architecture, a beautiful lake, and beautiful views.
Today, Silver Lake is the heart of the alternative and indie rock scene with two annual festivals. It is bordered by Silver Lake Reservoir, a picturesque lake with a 2-mile jogging trail surrounding it. This area also features a large park with a playground and picnic area, a recreation center with tennis courts, and a dog park. Silver Lake is known for its nightlife, bars and popular restaurants.
