Echo Park Lake
Park in Echo Park
Why I go LA put its shoulder into restoring this park and there are lotus flowers, paddle boats, and tons of deja vu moments because an awful lot was shot here. There's the OK Go video End Love. Nosy Jake Gittes photographing Hollis Mulwray in Chinatown. My favorite is Gilligan's Island: Some "uncharted island" exteriors are actually the lake's tiny island.
What to look for Walking distance away is Brite Spot, a great diner that's open late for tofu hash and soyrizo scramble. It’s served as a backdrop for The Neon Demon, Netflix's Love, Stand-Up Guys with Christopher Walken and Al Pacino, and the FX romantic comedy You're The Worst.
