Snapshots from a Morning in Los Angeles' Silver Lake Neighborhood
On the advice of the wise men and women at Gentlemen’s Quarterly, I knew one of the Los Angeles neighborhoods I wanted to visit during my second go-around in the city was Silver Lake. Described by GQ contributor Natalie B. Compton in a January 2018 piece as “LA’s chillest neighborhood,” it sounded like the perfect place to spend our first morning after getting into town late Saturday night.
Situated slightly northwest of downtown and very near Dodger Stadium, Silver Lake is known to embrace the “hipster lifestyle” — think street art, clothes that send a message, fancy coffee, and a vegan option at every restaurant. The neighborhood’s main drag runs right along Sunset Boulevard, where each of the photos below were taken. We may have only seen a tiny swath of the overall neighborhood, but I think these shots give you a good idea of what you can expect if you ever pay Silver Lake a visit.
