Echo Park is thumping

After finishing dinner with friends up in the hills next to Elysian Park this Saturday, we fell silent at the table and listened for the nightly thumping. There it was. Shortly after 9:30 p.m., a single, muffled thump, or more like a “whump” could be hear over the stereo music. It sounded like a distant skyrocket exploding over the Coliseum or the base line reverberating from a giant pick-up truck parked down the hill. A few moments later there it was again followed by several more thumps. Then it was over in about 15 minutes. It’s been like this every night since early summer, and our friends and their neighbors on Park Drive don’t know why.
