Back in February, with the writing on the wall that Highland Park is already deep into its gentrification, we set about trying to find "the next Highland Park." Curbed readers voted on the neighborhoods they thought were most ripe for a rebirth and throughout Rookie Roosts Week we'll be surveying potential starter homes in some of those neighborhoods--in up and coming areas, first-time buyers can get more bang for their buck, before waves of yogurt and yoga places drive home prices up. Today we visit East Hollywood, sandwiched conveniently between gentrifying Hollywood and gentrified Los Feliz and Silver Lake.
