Walk Eagle Rock started as a personal blog in the summer of 2010 but has since expanded to be a voice supporting positive and sustainable improvements in the Northeast LA area.
We believe in doing local travel around the neighborhood by foot or bicycle. We find by spending time in the community one gets to appreciate aspects one would not notice if traveling by car. We love subtle elements in the neighborhood – building architecture, hidden streets, the heart-warming timelessness one feels walking down Yosemite Drive on a sunny day. We enjoy exploring parts of town we do not pass by on a regular basis simply to experience or rediscover more of the community we love so much.
On this blog we express views on topics such as land-use and street design from the perspective of residents who primarily walks for transportation. We try to demonstrate that making our community’s streets less car-centric can mean making them safer, more enjoyable, more accessible, and ultimately more equitable.
We welcome feedback, anyone interested in sharing thoughts can leave a comment or contact us directly via email.
