In Memoriam: Walking Man Marc Abrams


Sad news. Marc Abrams, known locally as the Walking Man for making daily 20-mile treks around the Silver Lake Reservoir, has died at the age of 58. Abrams was recently photographed by Gregg Segal for Los Angeles magazine’s The Outsiders, a salute to the locals who “brighten the schlep of our daily commute.”

Update: A public memorial walk has been organized in Abrams’ honor. The walk will start at noon on Sunday at the intersection of West Silver Lake and Moreno drives.
