Gaslamp Quarter Entrance
Gaslamp Quarter

This was taken on a Saturday night and there was dozens of people walking around this "festive" area.  The long exposure times somehow made most of the people disappear.  The San Diego Convention center is aross the railroad tracks and Petco Park is around the corner.

More About Gaslamp Quarter

The Quarter is home to many events and festivals, including Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp, Taste of Gaslamp and ShamROCK, a St. Patrick's Day event. PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres is located one block away in downtown San Diego's East Village. Croce's Restaurant & Jazz Bar, named after famous singer Jim Croce, is also located in the Quarter. The Gaslamp Quarter is a 16 1/2 block historical neighborhood in downtown San Diego, California. Its main period of development began in 1867, when Alonzo Horton bought the land in hopes of creating a new city center closer to the bay, and chose 5th Avenue as its main street. After a period of urban decay, the neighborhood underwent urban renewal in the 1980s and 1990s, and is today an energetic business and entertainment district. The Gaslamp Quarter, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, extends from Broadway to Harbor Drive, and from 4th to 6th Avenue, covering 16 1/2 blocks. It includes 94 historic buildings, most of which were constructed in the Victorian Era, and are still in use with active tenants including 150  restaurants, shops and nightclubs.
