Having lived in several neighborhoods since moving here in 1979, I have noticed that living in Hillcrest is one of the most dangerous for pedestrians. Crossing the streets on the Walk sign is a cautious situation at best. One could experience cars creeping around corners that one has the light to cross while one in still in the intersection. Crossing the street at a 4 Way Stop also does not guarantee that impatient drivers will not arbitrarily start driving forward while one is sill in the middle of the intersection.

To be clear, this comment refers to daytime adventures, not night time when all ALL BETS ARE OFF due to the high level of partying in the "downtown area of Hillcrest."

I don't have the data to back this up, but when I lived in the Egyptian, I was told by neighbors of at least two pedestrian-being-hit-by-car deaths at the crosswalk at Park & Essex (right across the street from Numbers). I believe those occurred at night. All bets definitely off.

If you notice, there have been more police officers on motorcycles stationed all around Hillcrest, catching drivers doing the "California roll," that creeping around corners thing, not stopping fully at stop signs, etc. Walk safe!

The first Saturday of every month is a great night to drink and dance at Numbers, on Park Avenue at University. Although it's called "Bears Night", for the husky, unpretentious gay men that started the tradition, it's become big enough to fill two different dance floors with all ages, genders, sexuality, "types" - and you don't have to drink or dance or even be gay to enjoy the people-watching.

I have never lived in Hillcrest but I love the community. I'm in El Cajon. I have had several occasions where I have gone to Hillcrest whether it's for Pride or just for fun. I'm in love the antique shops in the area as well. I own some great finds from some of the antique shops.
