Echo Park, a landscape of heights, vistas and tunnels, is also a place of echoes. It is allegedly named after the natural phenomenon of voices bouncing back from the empty reservoir and hills that would become Echo Park Lake and Sunset Blvd. With over a century of development and landscaping, these first echoes are gone, but the name remains.
Where are the echoes of yesterday and today? Know of any top spots in the area? Want to go on an echo hunt? Research will culminate in a group sourced map and tour of the current echo locations of Echo Park with Machine Project.

This research project was initiated for Machine Project’s All-Echo Weekend, as part of the Echo Park Rising festival.
