God help you if you live in Echo Park and had to endure the ghetto bird (slang for the LAPD helicopter) flying around Sunset Blvd at 6 am this morning. Eastsider LA has the details on what went down, an event that is notable because this block was profiled in our Echo Park Gentrification Watch: "The LAPD this morning has surrounded an Echo Park pawnshop where a burglary suspected is believed to be holed up inside. A three block section of Sunset Boulevard between Echo Park Avenue and Lemoyne Street has been closed off, according to nearby residents. Police arrived before 6 a.m. at the pawnshop located on the ground floor of the Jensen's Recreation Center, a neighborhood landmark at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Logan St." [Eastsider LA]
