Horton Plaza is falling down! Actually, the old Robinson/Planet Hollywood section of Horton Plaza facing Broadway is being bulldozed to accommodate a new public park. According to Civic San Diego, “Westfield will demolish the former Robinson’s May building and convey the land at the proposed plaza valued at $25.8 million in exchange for being relieved of profit-sharing payments through 2035.” In case you haven’t noticed, there is no longer free three hour parking.
In South Park, Graffiti Beach owners invited “artist Marcy Kraft to ‘yarn bomb‘ the front of their store, where Kraft knitted and placed multi-colored covers for surrounding trees and streetlights, as well as a bike rack and surf board yarn bombs the areas around the front of their store.”
The exhibition can come down at any time, so check it out before all that’s left is a curious assortment of a few stray colored fibers on the sidewalk.
