View from First Avenue Bridge
San Diego is not just beaches. In terms of topography, there are many canyons, hills, and mountains that define our neighborhoods. Hillcrest (and as the name implies, this neighborhood is at the crest of a hill) gained a vital crossing into downtown when the First Avenue Bridge was built in 1931. The bridge looks across San Diego Bay to see a little part of Coronado island and beyond to Point Loma.
