NESTOR 19 STREET

VARRIO NESTOR RIFA

-A Fictional Story-

"As Wise As Nestor"

The name NESTOR has its roots in ancient Greek mythology. It is thought to mean a TRAVELER (vagabundo) and WISDOM (be trucha).

PONTE TRUCHA = "LA NETA".

-Nestor is named for Nestor A. Young, California state assemblyman from 1884-1886 and San Diego Harbor Master from 1889. The community is said to have began as farming community of Japanese Americans. Nestor, along with other portions of South San Diego, was annexed from San Diego County in 1957.-


And yes, the community got its name from a guero, just like so many other old Califas grounds which later got re-stamped with an Anglo-name.

..That’s that, and this is where WE take it from, with a little different side history!




THE BIG BAD OG NESTOR LOCOS NEIGHBORHOOD! ON THE SAFETY ZONE INJUNCTION MAP OF 2002, THEY HAVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHICH NESTOR CONTROLS MAPPED OUT AS MORE OR LESS THE MARKERS SET AT PALM AVENUE TO THE NORTH, 13TH STREET TO THE WEST, THE 5 FREEWAY TO THE EAST, AND THEN WAY DOWN SOUTH TO WHERE’S THERE’S NOTHING ELSE LEFT BUT THE BIG OLE TIJUANA RIVER VALLEY HORSE RANCHERIAS.


NESTOR BARRIO (COMMUNITY) STARTED GROWING UP IN THE FIFTIES, TOGETHER WITH OTHER NEAR-BY COMMUNITIES LIKE PALM CITY, EGGER HIGHLANDS, AND A PART OF ONEONTA, THEN THEY ALL APPLIED TO GET BROUGHT INTO THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO BACK LIKE IN 1957, SO THAT’S HOW NESTOR BECAME PART OF THE GREATER SOUTH SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY; BUT ANYWAYS, THE VARRIO NESTOR FAMILIES DOWN THERE STARTED GROWING ROOTS IN THE 60’s, AND BY THE 1970s, ORALE, THE NESTOR LOCOS GOT IT TOGETHER AND SET IT OFF TO PUT THEMSELVES ON THE SOUTHLAND MAP REPRESENTING WITH THEIR CLIQUE.


THEY WAY I UNDERSTAND NESTOR 19 TO HAVE STARTED OUT -CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG, DON’T MEAN NO HARM-


Varrio Nestor sparked off in the early 1970s. Their first generation would represent with the initials of NTR for NESTOR, and they called themselves simply LOCOS, so that’s how it was in the 1970s. Then in the 1980s their second generation started pushing 19 Street hard, and they became the Nestor 19 Street Locos; their second generation (19st) was so influential in the direction which the varrio took off, that they basically even changed their initials from NTR to NST19. The NST can be a play on the initials to signify either NeSTor or Nineteen StreeT..


…NeSTor
…Nineteenth StreeT
…Nestor Nineteenth StreeT..


..but they never ever fail to throw up the NST before the 19. EITHER WAY, "NST" IS NEVER EVER LEFT OUT OF THE VARRIO EQUATION BECAUSE THAT’S IS THEIR ~> 1ST OFFICIAL GENERATION.

Their 3rd generation in the 1990s, the Chicos just kept it going just like that as NST19, and just added their clique name -NST19CHS-, and then their fourth generation in the new millennium, the “Youngsters” clique did it too, and kept the 19ST going, hitting up V’NST’19’YGS.



So how did that 19 Street whole deal come about? So it goes like this, some time back in the 1950’s there was a 19 Street which ran down the whole South San Diego strip which ran from Palm City, up by where the Home Depot currently stands today -(that spot used to be the back side of the original Palm City neighborhood, before the 5 freeway was built)- but then 19 Street got re-labelled by the City of San Diego and they gave it the name of Saturn Boulevard., pero La Raza from Nestor were already established there from even before then, so they weren’t going with it, so they stuck with El Diez y Nueve and kept the 19 Street name alive, immortalized it, por vida! That’s their Corazon of the Barrio (19 Street & Nestor Park); hence NST “19 STREET.”


The young community which at one time was dominated with a landscape of crop farms and dairy farms back in the 1940’s, had grown up to include a varrio hit by a gang injunction en el dos mil dos. Now some people out there would say that Nestor didn’t earn it, but as usual playing devil wolf I gotta disagree, por’ke in this new millennium, you have to be street visually active to get an injunction, so NESTOR was visibly active, -not to mention nothing else- so that’s how that came about. Step up to the sidewalk or a neighborhood park and post up, see what happens nowadays? Ya sabes, right? So, give credit where credit is due, NESTOR is down with it. The rest is History!
