New Russian restaurant open on Broadway! Nicest staff and and great authentic food. Counterpoint - fun as ever. Luigis makes a killer pizza pie (cash only). Panchitas panaderia - boleos and orejas are the best. Obviously I like my food. Oh! Influx - try the spicy vegan ;).

Today was the Reader's first day in Golden Hill. Enjoying our new digs at 2323 Broadway!

That's empanadas de crema, and cochitos (shaped like little pigs)!

Halfway Hill

That's what a friend calls my new neighborhood. I think he is talking about the recovery places. But maybe just the general transitional vibe. Saw this sign on G St near 25th, overlooking the 94.

Bad English. Should be habitation OF vehicles.
And "at any time" should probably be "at all times" Where was this taken?

Probably along F Street. Same's happening on G and was happening on the bridges over the 5. I guess they finally got kicked out of Mission Bay.

Probably referring to all of the sober living and halfway houses in the neighborhood. I only know about them because I work in social services. The only one that really stands out is the one on Broadway just west of 7-11. There are about 5 or 6 more in the area but most people probably see nothing more than beautiful old Victorian homes.

Not many people know that there's a secret canyon in Golden Hill. Don't tell anybody, but there's a breathtaking view on 23rd and A St. I've been walking through the path above it since I was a kid.

Well--at least local fauna know about the canyon--my husband and I saw one of the few raccoons we've seen in the area at 23rd and A, headed into the drainage ditch with baby in tow.

It was a great secret until you posted it on the Internet.

So does anyone have any updates on the flyers being posted all over Golden Hill about a rapist at large? I ask because I want to know if he's been apprehended yet and also to warn any females who might be unaware.

As far as I know he has not been caught yet. Please warn any women you know in this area to carry pepper spray, and to lock their doors and buildings well. I sleep with pepper spray, my mag light, and my dog. This guy is a super creeper, who sneaks in and attacks women while they are sleeping.

I wish they had a "Summer Evening" type of event at the Golden Hill Park. Imagine taking a date there with a slice of Luigi's Pizza, setting up a picnic and watch the sun set. If only...

That would be cool...or if they had music in the Park on Friday or Saturday evening... I could imagine a blanket and picnic basket with goodies!

Golden Hills...Golden Hills...I wish I could sing a song about it! I love my neighborhood. It's nicely tucked away between Downtown and South Park. It's close to the 94, 5, 163, 805 and the 15. I can get ANYWHERE fast! But that's the the best of it. The restaurants. Markets. Shops. Coffee shops. Ahhhh....you should be jealous if you are not living in Golden Hills. You can walk, bike, or drive anywhere. Golden Hills is my little haven! I just wish I had a Scooter and a Pool!

It's "Hill". There is no argument for the other side. The only people who think it is Hills, or "Hillz" are a bunch of 16 year old high school dropout gangsters.

Been living in Golden Hill for the last 10 years and LOVE IT!

Noticed the Reader offices set up shop about a 40 second walk from my apartment. Welcome to the neighborhood.

If you haven't been yet, check out Humberto's on 25th and Broadway. Best taco shop in the area! There is usually a line out the door so call your order in ahead of time.

Anybody know what the deal is with that sweeeet, halfway-constructed stone fountain at the southwest corner of Golden Hill park? It's fun to walk around and chill at, but seems like it was a cool project that was abandoned. Just wondering :)
