Rumblings & Bumblings: Echo Park Rapes? A South Park Pile? Silver Lake Dirt?

New, 35 comments

Hello. We have tres questions this week. Please feel free to email us at if you have answers to these questions or maybe an update on a past question. We would also really appreciate digital pictures.

1) Echo Park: A friend of Curbed is concerned, and now we are too. "I'd like to know information about a possible spike in rapes in echo park. i have heard of two women being raped, one in a parking lot off sunset. i also talked to a woman who said she was walking down sunset at 1 am and a white van pulled up, two men jumped out and CHASED her down the street. she ran into a nearby bar. does anyone know anything if there is indeed a spike in attacks or a serial rapist? lots of women in echo park are talking about this."

2) South Park: Construction downtown, heh? Could be just about anything. "There's a something going on at the corner of Venice and Hope - like a pile of construction stuff. Any idea what it is."

3) Silver Lake [ADJ]: Get ready for another dirt lot, Los Angeles. "Right across from the Camino Nuevo High School - the one built in the street median - on Temple is this lot (pictured). It looks like something is being cleared but do you have any idea what's going in there?"
