West Silver Lake Drive looking north across Silver Lake. West Silver Lake Drive was created by real estate developers George W. Dickinson and Company in 1925, when they developed a new housing project along the west shore of Silver Lake. ”Moreno Highlands Lake Front homes,” were completed in 1926-1927. Engineers working on streets, curbs and sewers referred to the drive as ”Redesdale,” a street in the hills northwest of Silver Lake (Photo: Los Angeles City Engineering Staff).
What's going on at the Reservoir
THE SEPTEMBER 6th DEPT OF WATER & POWER RESERVOIR WALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED. SORRY!
Alimento, our newest foodie sensation neighborhood cafe at the site of the old Back Door Bakery on Silver Lake Blvd. just north of Effie, is now open. Along with a creative menu by Chef Zach Pollack, Alimento features a high-tech water filtration system that provides still or bubbly water, and they offer it at $1.50/person unlimited service.
Of that fee, they will be donating 50% ($.75/person) to the Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy, to support our efforts and to help communicate to their clientele the importance of water!
So, spread the word and visit Alimento. Reports are that the foodie crowd is crowing with enthusiasm: 1710 Silver Lake Blvd.; open 5:30 -10 Tues-Thurs & Sun; 5:30-12:00 Friday and Saturday; 323-928-2888.
