We have lived in Eastlake since 1997. Wouldn't trade locations anywhere else in SD county. We are 6 miles from the ocean, 22 minutes from Downtown SD, lots of great families and the demographics are not an issue, If you're a racist then simply leave. As a WHITE Anglo-Saxon, the community is wonderful. It's friendly, convenient & relatively crime free. It's MUCH better than dealing with the North Park or DT homeless folks that you so much adore! When are you moving back to the ghetto?
I have lived in the Burbs of Eastlake since its inception in 1987. I have to say, I truly love it here and have raised my family here. I still find time to go to the city and attend mass in Little Italy. What Ms. Salaam fails to realize is that Eastlake is a melting pot of culture and acceptance. My children have grown up with friends of all races and ethnicities. Not all the Moms of Eastlake wear big Sunglasses and go to Zumba! Maybe we are our own little World, but it is a great world to live in! What you have failed to mention in your blasting of the Eastlake Community is what this community has produced in its 20 plus years as a developing community, Top Ranked Schools, Little League World Series Champs, Adrian Gonzalez, a World Class Olympic Training Center, Several CIF Championship Teams, need I go on? Public records show that you purchased your current home as a bank-owned property in 2011 for $256,000! Not a bad deal for a 4 bedroom, 4 bath home in a community that has been Ranked the #1 Community in San Diego to live in since 1997 by the San Diego Union Tribune readers poll! If you are so unhappy here, I am sure that there are many people who would love to take your house off your hands for the bargain basement price in which you paid for it!
