New pizzeria in Echo Park

Gra PIzza in Echo Park

Echo Park has gained a swanky new pizzeria. Gra Pizza, which we told you about last year, has opened its doors in the 300 block of Glendale Boulevard in the Echo Park Village complex. A reader who walked by this afternoon snapped a photo of the place as kitchen staff were busy in the kitchen.  Eater has some background on the sourdough pizzeria.

The Atwater Village and Glassell Park neighborhood councils and other groups are holding a community workshop today over the Casitas Lofts development, which would bring more than 400 housing units to a site along the L.A. River near the 2 Freeway in Glassell Park.  The L.A. Times has covered the issue and Councilman Gil Cedillo has offered his take on the development.

The public can now comment on an environmental impact report that looks at three proposals to close the approximately 8-mile gap in the L.A. River Bike/Ped Path between Elysian Valley and Vernon.
