|North Park's Hammond's Ice Cream Parlor|
WE’RE NUMBER ONE—If you don’t live in the historic San Diego neighborhoods of North Park or South Park you might not be privy to a intramural competition among locals as to which is the best ‘hood?
South Parkers claim a tad more sophistication when it comes to retail and community ambience, while North Parkers feel like the older sibling: I was here first and what is here is best, especially a huge, I mean really huge inventory of vintage Arts & Crafts bungalows, a collection so large that editor and founder of American Bungalow magazine told a San Diego writer that North Park has the largest number of differing types of craftsman bungalows in the nation.
But, the one-upmanship is moot.
Both ‘hoods are rich in hipster amenities like hot restaurants, top retail and gonzo craft beer emporiums.
So, the results are in. We have a tie.
It’s a tie--not because of political correctness by a namby pamby writer—but the real reason is both have what it is needed to be a winning neighborhood: one fabulous ice cream parlor each.
End of story.
