Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Ah, the hazards of gentrification: a limo got stuck trying to make it over the steep hill on Baxter Street in Echo Park.It's bad enough trying to get up that hill if your car's engine isn't up to snuff. But if you have a really long vehicle that hangs low to the ground, like a limo, you have to really watch out. Echo Park Now has an amazing picture of the limo from yesterday. (We're not sure if the limo ever made it out of the rain.)

This isn't the first vehicle that got stuck trying to make it to the top. The Eastsider has a picture of a bus that got stuck on that same hill back in 2009.
