A crew from the Los Angeles County Environmental Health Department hauled off the carts of at least two sidewalk vendors at the corner of Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard, according to one resident. Health officials occasionally sweep the area for unlicensed vendors. Michael, an Echo Park resident, took the above photo shortly after 12 p.m. as he was headed home. Michael, who did not want his last name published, said:
I didn’t see the fruit vendors, not sure what happened with them. I looked over to see if the orange juice guy was still there, but he wasn’t there either (although he may have left already since this was at noon).
