Columbus Day parking

A reader, who asks that his/her name not be used emailed me yesterday with the following observation regarding the major motion picture that has parked in Echo Park for the next three weeks or so:

I drove down Park Ave. about an hour ago and saw the Midnight Mission van parked right next to the production vans and star trailers. There was a long line of people waiting for food. I thought that only in L.A. do you have a major film being shot right next to a queue of hungry people who can't afford a meal.
Kind of made me want to raid the craft services table and pull a little Robin Hood action.
I guess the silver lining is that the production company let the Midnight Mission van park in the no-parking zone. Small victories.
