You might want to post your question in another thread. I'm sure you'll get more responses.

To answer you question, there are many safe areas here, but you will pay more to live there.

The pictures of Newport Ave. remind me of Haight St. in SF, except... cleaner. And sunnier.

Great pics sdurbanite, you've got a talented eye!

These are great vacation pictures but hardly representative of what it is like to really live here day to day. Take out the ocean shots, the views from multi-million dollar neighborhoods and of Balboa Park.
These pictures encourage unprepared people to move here thinking this is how it's going to be. Why not post photos of what it's actually like for most people to live here day to day? IN debt. Scraping to make ends meet. What most qualities of housing are? How about photos of some of those half million dollar "condos" that are old rentals converted, with views of alleys, or parking lots, or phone lines? Get REAL.

I know you are trying to "enlighten" everybody to the negatives of SD but this thread isn't the place to do it. If you want pics of run down apts with views of alleys then post them yourself. Nice pics sdurbanite.

Exactly.

As I've said before, very nice pics!!

^^^Thanks!



Sandwiched in between Hillcrest to the north, downtown to the south, Balboa Park to west and I-5 to east is historic Bankers Hill aka Park West. This charming and safe neighborhood has everything you can imagine, including highrises, stately homes, great views and apartment buildings from every decade. It's only drawback it that it's southern half lies under Lindbergh Field's flight path.

Sixth Ave, runs along Balboa Park


Turn of the Century meets Mid-Century Modern


Fourth Ave, looking towards downtown


Who doesn't love mixed-use?


Laurel St. with the airport in the background


An out of scale, luxury condo building


Lots of fantastic and varied architecture




Historic Beth Israel Synagogue, built 1926


San Diego style rowhomes


A little San Francisco in San Diego




Modern lofts


Irving Gill-designed First Church of Christ, Scientist, circa 1910




The Abbey (circa 1910) has been a church and a nightclub in the years past


Highrises dot the neighborhood




Lots of stately homes along great streets






















Some modern stuff mixed in
















A friendly corner market and deli


Quick plug for one of my favorite late night restaurants, Modus Supper Club MODUS (broken link) (Open till 1:30am everynight, with DJ's spinning while you eat) Try the burger, it's $16 but it's delicious




Be prepared for low flying planes


Canyon crossings - Spruce St. Pedestrian Footbridge








Quince Street Bridge (Built 1905)


Cool, old apartment buildings
















.....and some not so pretty ones
