I will add that Eagle Rock north of Colorado is considered a premier area for solidly middle class residents.

There are also nicer homes with great views in Eagle Rock west of Eagle Rock blvd and just south of the Eagle Rock Plaza and nice pockets along the either side of the Glendale (2) Freeway.

Very true. College View is one of the streets with great views.

Default huh...?

What parts of ER is the cop referring to? I go there a few times a month (was just in ER last night, actually) and have NEVER come close to bangers or gangs. Amazing. I know that parts of Yosemite are shady, but I've lived in the area for about 15 years and nothing there that interests me anyway.

Prices do seem to be quite high for the location, so I guess I'll focus my attention elsewhere for my search.

Also, have prices gone up over there? Lease prices are quite comparable to Pasadena...

And given a choice to live in either Eagle Rock or Sierra Madre, which would you choose?
wow, Eagle Rock versus Sierra Madre, they are both awesome but in different ways. If I were making the choice I think I would base my decision on hobbies, interests and life style plus job location.

It always has been. As for what the police told the OP, I have noticed police always give the worst side of every situation. There may be a slight gang problem in Eagle Rock, but I would be the problem is closer to the Highland Park area and there can also be a problem in East Pasadena, near Sirerra Madre.

Most of Eagle Rock is just fine to very safe. However, there have been some assaults recently at/near Yosemite Recreation Area, from which I've always gotten a negative vibe. And the colony of homeless folks doesn't seem to be shrinking. Still, we've never felt unsafe walking around and there are a lot of fine businesses and homes there. Like almost every area of L.A., you're going to find bad streets and good streets.
