So I officially moved to downtown SD back in 1989. That would make it over 25 years I have been living in the city. I can definitely tell you that the view from this bridge of downtown has changed heaps in this time. Well the view of the skyline has - the train yard just has a few more trolleys.

So from this view one can see the convention center, the ballpark and the new library all in one shot. In the 1910s, Downtown became one of the many San Diego neighborhoods connected by the Class 1 streetcars and an extensive San Diego public transit system that was spurred by the Panama-California Exposition of 1915. These streetcars became a fixture of the neighborhood until their retirement in 1939. The current Trolley began service on July 26, 1981, making it the oldest of the "second generation" light rail systems in the United States. The entire current Trolley network serves 53 stations, and comprises 53.5 miles (86.1 km) of route.

It is really great to see how much growth can happen in such a small footprint. Sometimes it does make me wonder how long growth like this can continue.
