Space to Chicken Corner

Echo Park blogger Hexodus noticed the other day that Google Streetviews is up and lurking. Now you can see Chicken Corner from space, and up close, too. Not the best view of our special corner, blurry and unselective, but it does a good 360. There's the stop sign. There's Magic Gas. There's the big empty lot that used to be called the ranch, it had ponies and goats,, wait! And watch. It's turning into condos! ... There's Chango, El Batey, Flounce, Custom Jeans, Han Solo, Lucas (the boutique), Show Pony, Silverwood Properties, Lucas (the salon). There's the little people, and a Pepsi truck, the posters for the missing dog, Kobie, who has a battallion of searchers still searching (he may be hiding in the park); there's the posters for the bands and the yard sales; there's the six doors to somewhere. There's where I was drinking coffee four days ago, and there's the guy who was eavesdropping on my conversation with my dog, Rosie. There's the yellow and the purple. It's all there.
