Bankers Hill/Middletown

Visitor Information

Bankers Hill/Midtown is literally up the hill from downtown San Diego.  It was an early upscale neighborhood of the growing city and many Victorian mansions remain in the area. Some are still residences and some are now offices for dentists, lawyers and small companies.  Many have been restored to their original glory. Condominiums and charming older courtyard apartments share the neighborhood with commercial development.  Residents are young professionals, empty nesters and those who enjoy the pedestrian lifestyle of an urban environment.

New condominiums and apartments are rising on Laurel near Balboa Park.  Many homes have views of the ocean or the park.  All share the noise of airplanes overhead.  The flight path passes right over their heads.  Airplane watching is a common pastime. Popular restaurants in the area include Laurel, Bertrand at Mr. As with its spectacular view and Busalacci's.  The Hob Nob Cafe has been a fixture in the neighborhood for years.  There are numerous delis and small neighborhood restaurants available as well.

BLKBOX
San Diego
This award-winning play (Susan Smith Blackburn Prize) is one of the few works exploring this material from a female point of view and it offers an honest, raw take on post-prison life. A funny, gutsy, poignant drama about the powerful relationship between two women, former cellmates, both newly released from prison and trying to cope with the uncertain freedom of life on the outside in modern-day London.
