A mural depicting Dr. Marc Abrams, otherwise known as the Silver Lake Walking Man, has been spotted by Mark Lisanti. The mural, found on Sunset Blvd. abut Local, a restaurant, is by Nicky Gagliarducci and focuses on the local scene. Back in 2004, Abrams told a local reporter about his route (.pdf): "I usually loop around the lake, and then go down West Silverlake to Rowena, and then Hyperion, and then Griffith Park Blvd. down Sunset, back down Silverlake to the reservoir, and then back and loop around the lake again. So it’s about 15 miles altogether." Back in 2007, LAist interviewed the Silver Lake Five Dollar Guy. (via Curbed LA)
