Atwater Village is one of Los Angeles' under-the-radar neighborhoods. Located in northeast L.A., next to Los Feliz and Silver Lake (and bordering Griffith Park, shown at left), it's an area bustling with people in entertainment, as well as other industries. The village is known for its tree-lined streets and classic California architecture, with many of its bungalow homes dating from the 1920s and 1930s. But for all it has to offer many Los Angelenos live there for its hip factor.

And it's not as if it's a fledgling community -- this Sunday, June 13, Atwater Village hits its centennial mark. The planned street fair to mark it's 100th anniversary will no doubt lure residents and non-residents.

Atwater is a beloved by those who make it their home, so we decided to take a look at what makes it so great -- and how it ranks in L.A.'s real estate market.
