The Dodgers, bi-coastal

A lot of people who live in Echo Park came originally from Mexico, or Cuba. A smaller but still significant portion came from Brooklyn. In fact, I moved here from Brooklyn (where I had lived for a couple of years). So did my neighbors a couple of doors away. The playwright-performer Heather Woodbury also came from Brooklyn, and in her most recent theater production, Tale of 2 Cities, she links the stories of Chavez Ravine with the New York borough.
