City Heights humbugged by no Christmas lights

My mother makes her demand

The Convoy district may be San Diego’s hub for Asian food, but that doesn’t mean all the good ones are concentrated in that area. For example, tucked into a strip mall on an otherwise restaurant-bare ...

Just want to give a shout out to all my city heights residents! This neighborhood has come a long way...since its inception when Rosa Parks actually visited the school on its opening and Magic Johnson opening our new mall. Dont forget to smile at your neighbor!

I now stay in Otay Mesa but City Heights, I will never forget you! FYI we were kicked out of our house due to eminent domain thank you city of san diego for building a school where my house used to be: 4152 51st :'( SHIRT PLEASE! haha.

Last Sunday night sometime after midnight, someone broke into my neighbors' 1st floor apartment (4000 block of 48th Street). Stepped on a bucket and climbed thru an open or unlocked window. My neighbor was sleeping on the living room floor, and woke up to hear the invader unlocking the front door to make his escape. The neighbor chased him down the alley, but the guy got away. All he got away with was a kitchen knife and a diabetes testing kit. Maybe his sugar was running high...

Man, I walk down university every single day, craving Alberto's taco shop carne asada fries, enjoying the shade that the post office provides, catching the scent of fresh tortilla lily being made, dodging pedestrian traffic, I grab myself The Reader every thursday at the liquor store on the corner of VanDyke. Holler Holler City Heights!

I love City heights for being so culturally diverse and for having so many different restaurants to choose from. The Ethiopian and Mexican restaurants are my fave! I am so proud to live in such an active community with so many wonderful people! <3 City Heights!

First the city removed the public trash bins on the east and west sides of Van Dyke, just north of University. Then someone removed the (concrete) picnic table with benches in front of Albertson's and the pizza joint. Now even the one public bench in the whole 'community' area has disappeared! Now even those of us past 60 can just sit on the curb I guess. I ask you, is this any way to treat a community? Even if we shared those resources with those who may have a more transient existence? Would this happen in Hillcrest? In Ocean Beach?

City Heights neighbors, has anyone else noticed that all of the area mailboxes have signs posted saying they are slated for removal? What's up with this, and why is our neighborhood being singled out for this bizarre service slashing? Is the post office trying to imply that no one in this neighborhood knows how to read and write? Seriously, who else is offended by this unexplained action?

I've noticed that the Union-Tribune has removed some of their newspaper racks from City Heights and North Park. I guess they got the hint that nobody pays for their ultra right-wing fishwrap anymore, especially not when they can read it for free online. It'll be a glorious day when every last one of those ugly boxes is removed.
