Well, that’s what the new LA Times map of neighborhoods has determined. Echo Park and Silver Lake are now part of something called Central. But how trustworthy is this map? Not very judging by a quick glance.
The Times would have you believe that Silver Lake begins across the street from Echo Park Lake on Glendale Boulevard. This part of the neighborhood west of the lake is being considered for an Echo Park historic district. Sounds like this map will need a lot of work. So, don’t expect this Eastsider to start calling himself a Silver Laker or Centralist anytime soon.
