Monday, January 10, 2011 In Echo Park

: Patron Saint, alley at Logan and Sunset, Echo Park

Echo Park is a strange place Mack Sennett's studio was in Echo Park until the end of the silent era, and lots of silent comedies were shot here Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Our Gang and that sort of thing. Exteriors for Gilligan's Island were shot here, and parts of the 1953 film version of The War of the Worlds. Jackson Browne and Frank Zappa have lived here, and Charles Bukowski, and Anthony Quinn and Steve McQueen. They come and go. Jerry Rubin lived here and ran a legal and civil rights office on the southwest corner of Echo Park Avenue and Sunset for much of the seventies and eighties. But now it's sort of a mix of a sleepy minor Guatemalan city you won't hear much English and a gritty-hip trendy white-and-young arts scene, with eccentric galleries and unusual small clubs and folks driving through on their way to Dodger Stadium up in the hills. And this is the dead center of it Logan and Sunset.
