Fillmore District

Fillmore Street
that runs through the Fillmore neighborhood reflects the neighborhood's diversity: family-owned neighborhood-serving retail mixes with chain stores, jazz clubs, ethnic restaurants of many varieties, and empty storefronts. Some of the stores, restaurants, and clubs lost to redevelopment are memorialized by plaques on the sidewalk. Other ties to the neighborhood's past remain as well; for example, the building that once housed Jimbo's Bop City—a nightclub frequented by noted jazz musicians of the '40s and '50s—was moved during redevelopment to Fillmore Street, where it now houses an Afrocentric bookstore, Marcus Bookstore. Fillmore street is also known for "the Triangle", which is where Fillmore meets Greenwich street. Triangle is an infamous area, describing 3 corners of the intersection with the bars Balboa Cafe, East Side West, and City Tavern. See also[edit]
