Description:
East Village is a neighborhood in San Diego, California. It is the largest district in the downtown of San Diego, and is located east of the Gaslamp Quarter and southeast of the Core district and Cortez Hill. especially near Petco Park, which opened its doors in 2004.

History

The East village was traditionally a series of warehouses and vacant lots. It wasn't until the 1990s that it became a community for artists and social services. Residential aspects of the East Village became a reality in 2005, after Petco Park was established.

Urban renewal

The East Village was traditionally known for its dive-bars, eclectic dwellers of artists, and drug addicts. Beginning with the addition of Petco Park, it is now known as "fiercely fashionable", with the visitors forgoing the beaches of San Diego, in search of a trendy and experimental vibe. The new Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, opening in Spring, 2011, will link the neighborhood with the harbor area and the Convention Center.
