Sunset Boulevard had been shut down west of Alvarado at about 7 pm as police search for a suspected gang member who officers said was carrying a gun. Canine units were brought in to assist in the search.
The Eastsider LA explores the joys, hassles, contradictions and general weirdness that defines Echo Park and the Eastside of Los Angeles. You can also expect news, history and tips on making the most of living in this corner of L.A.
Defining the Eastside can be a touchy and heated topic. For the purposes of this blog, and practical reasons, The Eastsider LA will focus on Echo Park, where I live, and other neighborhoods in the northeast section of the City of Los Angeles.
Got a tip, story, photo, video or blog post you want to share about your section of the Eastside? Please contact me.
