Here’s some of what downtown dwellers have told us through “Living In The City”:

“I gave up owning a car three years ago. Never thought I would do that. Like most Californians I was married to my car. I have not missed it for even one single day.” –Myrna Marston, Marina District

“You can’t go wrong with Meze‘s chicken gyro or spanakopita.” –Kaushal Patel, East Village

“I try to do a four-mile harbor walk four nights a week. Having the harbor so close is a good excuse to exercise.” –Danny Rolls, Marina District

“The beauty of living downtown is that we are gifted with so many free tickets when our North County friends can’t make it down to Padres games.” –Emily Mason, East Village

“Know that the big hotel pools aren’t just for the hotel guests.” –Shay Priyadarshi, Marina District
