Silver Lake is located just five miles north of downtown Los Angeles. The city was built around The Silver Lake Reservoirs, which comprise of two basins. The lower body, Silver Lake, was named after a local politician, Herman Silver, who helped create the reservoir and also gave the name to the city. The upper body of water is called “Ivanhoe” after Sir Walter Scott’s 1819 novel, which was the original name of the city. Today, only Ivanhoe remains online and supplies water to the area.
Silver Lake is known for its restaurants and hipster hangouts. It has become home to many artists, musicians, writers and creative people as well as many film studios and street festivals. Walt Disney built his first large studio in the city in the 1930s.
The neighborhood has several public and private schools. In 2008 the city estimated that the population was 32,890. The median age for residents was 35 which is about average for Los Angeles.
