SAN DIEGO DOWNTOWN (92101) Community Profile

DOWNTOWN SD 92101After California's statehood in 1850 downtown San Diego was born. The area had an insular existence at first but it came to life after developer Alonzo E. Horton crafted the towns' nucleus near the harbor. From this waterfront purchase sprang industries, shipping, railroad commerce, defense facilities, a large tuna fleet, and orange groves.
