Silver Lake is a residential and commercial neighborhood in the east-central region of Los Angeles, California. Originally named Ivanhoe in the 1900s by a resident from Scotland, it was built around what was then a city reservoir which gives the district its name. The "Silver" in Silver Lake is not because of the water's color, but named for a local politician who helped create the reservoir. The area is also known for its restaurants, painted staircases and hipster hangouts, and many notable people have made their homes there. Wikipedia
