so it looks like it'll be a while for it to reach silver lake gentrification status.
my house got tagged last week, as did many other parts of the hood. gang warfare, i keep hearing.
so, it's like THE ghetto.

Not yet gentrified like Silver Lake! »

It'll probably happen before I know it-- organic vegan brunch bars and hemp baby clothing shops and fair trade cafes popping up everywhere, but for now it is my grungy little oasis of taco trucks and dive bars.

Now, Echo Park is definitely not stop #1 on a tourist agenda. But if you like authentic, underground and cheap shit to do its a good place to stop off.

Definitely a good glimpse of the other side of LA - where working class mexican families and starving artists collide. I dig it.
