Headstart demolished in EP

A brand new gone. July 3: 10 a.m. no sign of demolition as I cruised down Echo PArk Avenue in my dusty Jetta. 8 p.m., on foot, I walked past two bulldozers that hadnít been there earlier. The Headstart preschool building is rubble. Gone. Piles of drywall and wood and plastic piping probably from a childrenís climbing structure. In the yard is a plastic playhouse and a plastic slide turned over on its side. The banner advertising Headstart sign-up is still hanging from the chain link. I had heard that the owner of the property, a longtime resident and property owner from Echo Park, had planned to do away with the Headstart building. This rumor was true.
