STREET SIGNS – Black Widow
There's a small lock and key/car alarm and stereo installation/auto accessories kiosk in front of the Hi-Ho Drive-in Market (1401 Glendale Blvd.) at the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Montana Street in Echo Park that is covered in graffiti murals. During business hours, the owner pulls up the metal shades that are adorned with art on the shack's front and sides. But in the early mornings and late afternoons, one can admire the colorful pieces. My favorite mural, titled Black Widow, is on the rear side of the shop, so it's on view all day.
