Not only is Echo Park not in the Eastside but part of it is in Silver Lake

Well, that’s what the new LA Times map of neighborhoods has determined. Echo Park and Silver Lake are now part of something called Central. But how trustworthy is this map? Not very judging by a quick glance.

The Times would have you believe that Silver Lake begins across the street from Echo Park Lake on Glendale Boulevard. This part of the neighborhood west of the lake is being considered for an Echo Park historic district. Sounds like this map will need a lot of work. So, don’t expect this Eastsider to start calling himself a Silver Laker or Centralist anytime soon.

  1. You can say that the LA Times map is wrong. You can also say that science is wrong about the earth being older than 6,000 years. Personally, I’m going with the scientists and the LA Times.
