Tagged it! Couldn't quite get the same angle or area as Molly due to too many vehicles. Looking down onto Union Station from Plazita Olvera.

Next tag coming shortly. Sorry for the crappy mobile pic.

by the way I saw about 6 scooters parked right on the entrance (alameda) to Plazita Olvera.

As my students say, "Tag, you're it!" I intentionally covered part of the sign that says "Center".

Clue: It's east of downtown LA. Some students in the area refer to it as "el parque de los patos" or "The duck's park".

Hey Molly, not in Echo Park Razz emoticon . Did you read my clue above your post?

Here's another Clue: There's a sheriff station on the right of the park and a municipal court building, recently constructed, on the left, along with civic center offices.

This is what happened last night (10 stitches) not due to riding, but due to a would be neighborhood car thief, a tire iron and being a vigilante. So no vespa for a while...

(BTW feel free to photo tag this picture Razz emoticon )

thanks all! GF and I were going to get some late night coffee. Drove around the corner and saw a man trying to steal a pickup truck. I went after him along with two other random people. Got him cornered in a parking lot, he came after me with the tire iron, I blocked it and gave him a nice little punch. He ran out from another entrance of the parking lot and the LAPD was waiting for him at the end of the block.

okay, so, I must be way lame cause I thought that I had this for sure and I went and drove and ... again, all the ingredients were there, but no find. Blah! at least dinner after the search was good. Check out 15 in Echo Park if you have not already done so, it is FANTASTIC w/ a great happy hour meal special. YUMmY!

Yep! Not just the observatory!! We had to travel up the hill, through the traffic, past security, past the tour buses, up the pedestrian path, around the landmark and to the sundial.... great tag!

go for it apziskin, i'm stuck on the westside this week.

I'll "buy you a beer" if you can bring the tag westward bound (e.g Westwood, Brentwood, etc)

L.A's too darn big! lol....
