Sunset Junction 2006

With proceeds benefiting community-based charities, the 26th Annual Sunset Junction Street Fair is taking place this weekend in the Silver Lake District of Los Angeles, between Fountain and Edgecliff Avenues (3600 - 4200 blocks of Sunset Blvd.). If you want to cover it for TACO, please leave a message in the comments!

Formed in december of 1979, the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance was created to acknowledge and celebrate the diversity that exists in the neighborhoods of Silver Lake, Echo Park and Los Feliz. This area of Los Angeles has long been recognized as an area where artists, gen x, gen y, latinos, gays, lesbians, students and entertainment moguls strive to live in harmony through mutual acceptance and respect for each other’s way of life.

Sunset Junction's youth program was created as a result of the community being pulled apart. People want their communities to be livable again, free of gangs, drugs and violance. The youth program has been a success getting neighborhood youth involved in taking action in the community. Organized by the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance, the program involves youth from the community who are under-served and at risk. They work in a summer six-week program learning horticulture, ecology, mural painting and environmental beautification while strengthening work values. Year-round the alliance provides tutoring and computer skills, mural painting, art classes, the summer program, support services to the community, job training, and after school programs.

Ten (Mostly) Recognizable ‘Repo Man’ Locations You Can Visit 40 Years Later

The original film somehow managed to cohesively fuse weathered, jaded repo men, L.A.’s burgeoning punk scene, UFO cultists, generically-labeled food items, and nuclear proliferation into a dark comedy that is both a product of its time and yet feels somewhat timeless.
