Right at the border of Echo Park and Silverlake along Sunset Boulevard, there are cliffs. They rise about 60 feet or so on the north side of the street. Now if you look closely, you will see the unusual structure.
I have been told, and I do believe that it is an ancient whale spine, embedded in the rock. It sure looks like it and I cannot think of any other way to explain it. Every time I go by I think, “Yeah, it’s gotta be!”
So I ask – does anyone else know anything about this? I have not found any additional details on line, and every time I bring it up, even to long time residents, many have not even seen it. You can totally miss it if you do not know its there. But its there alright.
