Nice old building

A view from the top story of Horton Plaza shopping mall of the corner of West "F" Street and First Avenue.

Felicia, if this were on my Monopoly board, I'd buy it! I want to live in the penthouse. . . Super shot, and the green of the trees make all the colors sing in this one.
BTW, that's so funny you were in the Rockridge! Do you prefer San Diego's climate or the Bay Area's?

The old San Diego Hotel building was just the other side of that block. One saturday morning in July some of us went down to watch it being dynamited. A spectacular sight!!

It was never a very swanky hotel. My friend remarked as the building crashed into the street, "Hope they cleared the whores out of the lobby first".

Thanks for stopping by.
Kim - I left my heart in San Francisco! Believe it or not I do miss the fog.
Stu - I heard about the demolition - sounds like it was a blast! My first thought on your comment was - leave it to Stu to mention the whores! I still find the transformation that downtown San Diego has gone through in the last 15 years so incredible. It is hard to forget how it used to be.
