NY Times: A very eastside eye on Eagle Rock

The New York Times' Scott Timberg has an interesting take on the possible return of Eagle Rock to its pre-hipster days sans Swork and artist-run boutiques. What brings many "hipsters" and creative types to this still pretty quiet enclave are the schools which have not changed. And Eagle Rock Athletic center's sports' program is one of the best in the city.  I don't think Trader Joe's is going anywhere either nor is Auntie Em's or the Colorado Wine Co. No matter what, it's way better than the early 1980s when the only thing going for Eagle Rock was The Bucket--seriously.
