The Cooper Basin, as I’ve just dubbed it, is a giant gutter that runs the length of Statler, north of Taper Ave. All the painted over graffitti shows that it is no stranger to trespassers. But how do they get in there? I have a call in to a friend to get the lowdown on this dirty stretch of street. Doesn’t it look like a miniature version of the LA River basin? Can’t you just imagine hosting a remote control car re-enactment of the scene in Grease where Danny Zucko races Crater Face Balmudo for pinks (yah, pinks you punk. Pink slips…ownership papers…). That would be awesome if it weren’t totally against the law. Duh.
