This city is waist-deep in hideous stucco apartment buildings, but someone did something about it in Echo Park. The Eastsider LA has images of a stubby building on Echo Park Avenue that got a rugby shirt-esque paint job recently. The website says the structure once had bars on the windows, which came off before the bold blue color and orange stripe were added. Reaction is all over the place in Eastsider's comments--love, hate, and everything in between. An observant reader notes the makeover looks like an homage to the Chicago Bears, while someone else mentions that a building on Silver Lake's Micheltorena Street was given a similarly colorful makeover. Are we seeing the start of a trend?
