1 Definition
  1. East Lake is an up- and coming turn-of-the-century neighborhood in full swing of revitalization. There is a movement to turn East Lake and the downtown East Lake area of 1st Avenue North and Oporto-Madrid Blvd into Birmingham's Art District. East Lake Arts District is bringing art and artists to the community to become a permanent part of electric fabric that is East Lake.

    Currently, professionals, hipsters, young families and artists of all kinds are beginning to relocate into this section of Birmingham while the home values are still very much affordable. Many of the remaining homes are wood and brick bungalows, English Tudors and two dozen Spanish Revivals.
