The story of an Echo Park family forced out of the neighborhood by rising real estate "values" is featured on the front page of the Times this morning. Written by Nancy Cleeland, who won a Pulitzer recently, the story centers on the residents forced out of the purplish building on Delta Street, which is now vacant. Many of the remaining residents in Echo Park -- those fortunate enough to be able to continue affording it -- have noticed that the building was empty. Cleeland's piece describes movingly what couldn't be seen from outside.
