Decrepit San Diego: forlorn Commercial St.
Trolley lines. Commercial Street was originally named N Street in the early 20th century. In her 1990 book "The San Diego Trolley," Gena Holle describes Commercial Street as an area "filled with the burnt-oil breath of auto wrecking yards and recyclers. Down-and-outers call Commercial Street home and set up shacks on the sidewalks. Crack dealers peddler their wares on street corners. It's a part of town most tourists didn't see until the [trolley line was put in]." Not much has changed.
Old Town San Diego
In Old Towne San Diego they discovered multiple graves sites under one of the roads. Markers were placed in the road to identify the graves.... and they were decorated in chalk for El Dia de los Muertos!

A history of class and power in San Diego, an anti-tourist guide that debunks the sunshine myth for locals and visitors alike.
Let's just say there was good liaison between city government and business.—Ex-mayor of San Diego, Frank Curran, on the 1960s
For fourteen million tourists each year, San Diego is the fun place in the sun that never breaks your heart. But America's eighth largest city has a dark side. Behind Sea World, the Zoo, the Gaslamp District, and the beaches of La Jolla hides a militarized metropolis, boasting the West Coast's most stratified economy and a tumultuous history of municipal corruption, virulent anti-unionism, political repression, and racial injustice. Though its boosters tirelessly propagate an image of a carefree beach town, the real San Diego shares dreams and nightmares with its violent twin, Tijuana.
This alternative civic history deconstructs the mythology of "America's finest city," exposing its true undergirdings of militarism, racism and economic inequality. Acclaimed urban theorist Mike Davis documents the secret history of the domineering elites who have turned a weak city government into a powerful machine for private wealth. Jim Miller tells the story from the other side: chronicling the history of protest in San Diego from the Wobblies to today's "Globalphobics." Kelly Mayhew, meanwhile, presents the voices of paradise's forgotten working people and new immigrants. The texts are vividly enhanced by Fred Londonier's photographs.
