“Diversity” describes the friendly residents of our neighborhood including North Park natives and recent immigrants, young and old, married and single, straight and gay ? a full array of races, nationalities, and religions all living together. “Diversity” describes the collection of structures in the district that range from Renaissance Revival of the 1910s to Post Modern of the 1990s. And “diversity” describes the businesses in North Park where you’ll find an interesting mix of specialty shops, restaurants, second hand stores, offices, and essential services.
North Park is one of San Diego’s most up-and-coming communities. Although many regions of San Diego claim to be the heart of the city, geographically North Park claims the true center: east of Hillcrest and immediately north of Balboa Park. Stemming from its matchless diversity, the community is rapidly emerging as one of San Diego’s newest cultural and artistic cores. As the area has matured, winning proprietors have drifted in to open a superlative variety of establishments, from award-winning restaurants to unique nightlife attractions. The community has also distinguished itself by hosting Ray at Night, a monthly festival where the myriad art galleries on North Park’s Ray street congregate to showcase the work of local artists.
