Hello and welcome to the second update of this fine CJ! I am pleased to see all this excitment(so to speak for this CJ! Nearly 5,000 views!!!! WOOHOOO! Anyway, enough of my praise, thanks,and pride in viewership/ comments!
Today(well, tonight since its 10pm in San Diego) we will be looking at the four neighborhoods of Delmont,Connaught, West End, and Auburn Central Park. Delamont and Connaught are split right down the middle by the freeway, I-805. Lets look at the overview of this part of Auburn.
Delamont is on the left and Connaught is on the right.
Delamont is home to many beautiful single family homes!
Lets take a closer look at the homes right next to the pond. Some homes can go as high as $600,000!
With at the thousands of residents living in these neighborhoods, the idea of having big box retailers is essential to life in suburbia.
Moving on to Connaught, is the newest subdivision: Hope Creek Ranch.
Hope Creek Ranch has apartment complexes as well as single family homes. These homes can go for $800,000. Pretty pricey for homes that overlook a small creek and your neighbor!
The next stop is the world famous Auburn Island Market Place. Some locals refer to the market as A.I.M.P. The market place is home to thousands of vendors selling everything from flowers to lobster to pictures of the Auburn skyline. Hundreds of thousands of residents and tourists visit the market place every year. It is one of the top attractions for the city. Parking is a big problem with thousands coming in every day. Some residents have even parked on the highway emergency lanes just to buy some of the best fish around! The 5 bus lines do relieve some of the congestion in the area.
This smaller neighborhood is known as South Golf since it is next to the golf course.
Moving along is the small satellite downtown for the West End.
This 805-5 exchange is one busy area. Hundreds of thousands of cars pack these two freeways as residents leave downtown and head for the northern and southern suburbs. Its best advised that you aviod this area durning morning and evening rush hour. Residents around the freeways have asked the city for sound barriers but to no avail.
Some of the million dollar homes which overlook the ocean. Kids living near the ocean will make forts and canoes out of the hundreds of logs that will wash ashore. Paintballing also quite common on the beach.
Finally is the Auburn Central Park.
Big Box once again!
The Auburn Tower was built in the 1880 as a look out point for the residents of Auburn. On any clear day one can see up to 50 milies in all directions. Auburn Tower provides panoramic views of the entire city! (As you can see I love taking shots of trafific filled freeway!)
Finally, is the Auburn Memorial Bridge
