The crossroads of Echo Park Avenue, Delta Street and Morton Avenue was known to many residents as Chicken Corner, a reference to the barnyard animals to be found at the former empty lot now occupied by condos. The chicken theme spread to a chicken mural on the side of what’s now Chango Coffee and later inspired the name of a neighborhood blog. Soon after Chicken Corner t-shirts began appearing around the neighborhood (Confession: The publisher of The Eastsider once ran a gallery that sold those shirts).
It’s been several years since those Chicken Corner t-shirts have been made. But if you want to replace your faded, torn or discarded Chicken corner t-shirt, one Eastsider reader found a used version on ebay.
The ebay listing for the t-shirt included such references as “Echo Park shirt,” “Chicken corner,” “hipster, “rooster” and “indie-boho.”
How much for this relic of Echo Park’s pre-hipster period? $12.99
