Prepare yourselves: The Yankees – and Dodger fans – are coming!

The arrival of the Yankees tonight at Dodger Stadium for a three-game series finds many Echo Park residents cheering but also dreading a weekend of traffic, trash and noise coming from the cars of visiting fans. How best to deal with this? On the Echo Elysian Forum, a resident named Matthew threatens to park his car – with Barry Manilow blasting on the stereo – in front of the home of an offending Dodger fan. Another resident suggests playing Chinese opera.  How about The Boy from New York City or another Big Apple tune?


  1. I hate the dodgers they are the getto team of los angeles Gooooooo” angels dimond backs colorado rockies “


  3. Simple rule: If you lived here before the stadium was built, you get to complain. If you moved in after the stadium was built, you knew what you were in for when you came into the neighborhood, so you have to deal with it.

  4. Your so correct ANON. When we moved here we knew dodger Stadium was sooo close since 1977 we have delt with the ” so called Dodger Problem”. My fondest memory was whn Micheal Jackson played Dodger Stadium it was so loud we heard EVERYTHING AND I LOVED IT.B-)

  5. maybe but maybe not

    i see your point anon, but when I moved here, there was no Scott street gate. that puts a whole new spin on things.

  6. And back then, the Dodger owners weren’t gouging people to park at the stadium. Now Elysian Park and the surrounding neighborhood streets have Dodger fans taking up parking, dumping at the curb after they leave and a lot of other obnoxious behavior that did not happen in the days when it cost $5 to park at the stadium. The McCourt’s greediness has made the Dodger’s become a negative impact on Echo Park instead of a positive one.
