Atwater village lies within the extreme north east corner of Los Angeles. Atwater borders Griffith Park and Silver Lake to the west, Glendale to the north and east, and Glassell Park to the south. It has three elementary schools—two public and one private.
Much of Northeastern Los Angeles was part of Rancho San Rafael, until 1902 when the entire region was subdivided and sold to home builders with the Atwater Village portion being initially named “Atwater,” while the “Village” was added in 1986.
Its location between the Los Angeles and Glendale city cores made it a highly sought after neighborhood beginning in the 1920s. The vast majority of the homes and structures in Atwater Village have never been demolished, but instead have changed in use or have been renovated), resulting in the neighborhood having one of the highest number of historic structures built before 1939 in Los Angeles. Today, the neighborhood is rapidly gentrifying due to younger buyers from adjacent areas such as Silver Lake and Los Feliz.
Atwater village is close by to the I-5, SR 134 and I-110 freeways allowing easy access to Downtown Los Angeles, and all of northern Los Angeles, Glendale, Pasadena, and Burbank. It also is adjacent to Metrolink Glendale Station, and is served by several Metro Bus lines.
