I owned and operated a Flashpoint Pictures photography studio at 311 8th Ave. from 1997 to 2000, where the Park at the Park is now. I lived there too, and it was next door to the historic Candy Factory building.
The East Village had a raw, industrial, artsy feel at that time. Many of us hoped it would develop into the \”Soho of San Diego\”.
