The most eastern area in San Diego, bordered by Mid-City to the west and La Mesa to the east. Besides Southeast, it is the most dangerous area in San Diego. It is actually very pleasant to visit, there are mostly crumbling beauty salons, Asian markets and laundry, and little Mexican taco shops (Aiberto's and Filiberto's, mainly). There are two high schools in City Heights, Crawford High Educational Complex and Hoover High. Hoover High is one of the worst high schools in San Diego. Crawford has been recently renovated. The majority of City Heights is very diverse, mostly Mexican, Asian, and African American, but at the schools in City Heights you will see almost everything you could imagine on the ethnicity chart. The area recently got an urban village, community center, and Metro Center. Houses are very beautiful and well-looked after, but you will notice bars on windows and doors, and lots of tagging. The people living there are very friendly.
We're gonna go to City Heights, chill at the park on Orange Ave, go to Aiberto's and get some rolled tacos, get our hair done at Hair Raising Experiences on University, and ride our chill bikes through da streets!
