Three years after Pacific Bell Park opened, the surrounding neighborhood is still trying to build a solid economic foothold.
"The area commonly referred to as South Beach has been a study in contrasts. On most days, it looks like a ghost town. But it won't look that way this afternoon. It's Opening Day, and all the same promise that had shopkeepers competing for nearby leases will be on full display once more... Business owners hope the return of baseball for the summer will be a big boost to a neighborhood that has suffered a familiar litany of economic setbacks, including the disappearance of dot-com office workers, and a loss of tourism due in part to Sept. 11 and the war in Iraq. A steady stream of construction projects hasn't helped, either. All of the above have brought foot traffic to a halt."
