VARRIO IRIS AVENUE

VARRIO IRIS AVENUE 13 INSANE FAMILY

-a fictional story-


I DON'T KNOW NADIE FROM IRIS AV PERSONALLY, SO I'M JUST TRYING TO POST SOMETHING UP HERE IN THE SOUTH SIDE HISTORICAL RECOGNITION PAGES. WHEN I FIRST HEARD OF IRIS AVENUE WAS SOMETIME BACK WHEN I'D RIDE THE TROLLEY LINE FROM SIDRO TO WOP TOWN AND VISIT MY FAMILY. THEN LATER WHEN I MOVED DOWN TO THE SOUTH BAY, I STARTED HEARING STORIES OF THEM IRIS AVENUE LOKOS RIDING HARD. FROM THEN UNTIL NOW, I KEEP HEARING THE SAME, EITHER OLD STORIES OR NEWER TAG-BANGING. IRIS IS STILL THERE IN IT'S ORIGINAL GROUNDS FOR SURE.

VARRIO IRIS AVENUE 13 INSANE FAMILY I’VE READ HAD IT’S BEGINNINGS WITH A CRAZY CROWD FROM THAT SAME GENERAL AREA THAT WENT BY THE NAME OF FCW (FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD). FCW WAS THERE IN THOSE GROUNDS SINCE BACK IN THE 1980’s. FCW OG’s ARE SAID TO HAVE COME FROM OR HAD CONNECTS WITH THE WORLD-WIDE FCW CHAPTERS FROM CHICAGO, NEW YORK, MIAMI, SEATTLE, LOS ANGELES, AND THEN FCW LANDED HERE IN SAN DIEGO’s SOUTH SIDE IRIS AVENUE NEIGHBORHOOD. FCW WAS SAID TO HAVE BEEN MADE UP OF ALL RAZAS; PUERTO RICANS, CHICANOS, NEGRITOS, PINOYS AND HUEROS. OVER TIME THIS DIDN’T FLY WELL IN THE CHICANO WORLD POLITICS FOR A VARRIO IN THIS PART OF TOWN, SO THAT FCW HAD TO BE PUT BY THE WAYSIDE,AND THEN VIA ROSE UP IN ITS PLACE AS A FULL-FLEDGED SURENO VARRIO IN THE 1990s.



IRIS AVE NEIGHBORHOOD IS SMALL IN COMPARISON TO ALL THEIR ENEMIES AROUND LIKE DEL SOL TO THEIR EAST (ON THE EAST SIDE OF BEYER BLVD), SIDRO TO THE SOUTH (SOUTH OF THE 905), AND NESTOR TO THE WEST (WEST OF THE I-5). VARRIO IRIS AVENUE MORE OR LESS FALLS IN-BETWEEN ALL THOSE SMALL STREETS BOUNDED BY THE TROLLEY/TRAIN TRACKS ON THE EAST, THE 905 FREEWAY ON THE SOUTH, AND CORONADO AVENUE TO THE NORTH. IT’S A SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD WHICH HAS SEVERAL MOBILE HOME PARKS AND APARTMENT COMPLEXES NEXT TO SOME STREETS WITH SINGLE HOME RESIDENTIAL LOTS AND THE SAN DIEGO PD SOUTHERN DIVISION RIGHT DEAD SMACK IN THE MIDDLE., SO MAYBE THAT’S HOW COME THEY HAVE PEOPLE FROM ALL THE RAZAS LIVING HERE. IT’S A POOR NEIGHBORHOOD SURROUNDED BY THE FREEWAYS AND BUSINESS PARKS AND WAREHOUSING BUILDINGS. BUT THIS IS WHERE IRIS AVENUE NEIGHBORHOOD LIVES ON.


NO DISRESPECT TO NESTOR 19 ST, THE VARRIO IMMEDIATELY TO THEIR WEST, WHO SOME PEOPLE CLAIMING STATE THAT IRIS AVENUE IS PART OF THEIR ZONE, HOWEVER THAT IS NOT ENTIRELY CORRECT. WHAT I MEAN IS THAT WHILE ON THE CITY MAPS TRACT, THE COMMUNITY OF NESTOR EXTENDS ALL THE WAY TO THOSE SAME IRIS R&R TRACKS, HOWEVER, THE NESTOR “VARRIO GANG” HAS NEVER EVER EXTENDED THAT FAR EAST PAST THE 5 FREEWAY. THEREFORE NO, IRIS AVENUE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS NEVER EVER BEEN PART OF VARRIO NESTOR.


THE IRIS NEIGHBORHOOD GREW UP IN THE 1970’s, THAT’S WHY SAN DIEGO CITY PLANNERS DECIDED UPON AN IRIS TROLLEY STATION THERE IN 1981 INSTEAD OF ON CORONADO AVENUE. THAT’S HOW MUCH THAT NEIGHBORHOOD GREW UP AND THEN THE WHOLE CRAZYNESS IN THAT AREA BLEW UP IN THE 1980’s WITH FCW AND OTHERS LIKE IDM AND UBC, PLUS THE SYCO POSEE ALL BEING AROUND THERE OR GOING TO SCHOOL RIGHT THERE AT IRIS AT SOUTHWEST JUNIOR HIGH (DEFUNCT). SOME FCW, IDM, UBC EVEN STARTED GOING BY THE NAME “INSANE FAMILY” A NAME WHICH SURVIVES IN THE VIA13 INSANE FAMILY CLIQUE NAME OF THE 1990’s. NOW IT’S BEEN 3 DECADES AND IxA IS STILL STANDING ON THOSE GROUNDS.

I WISH I HAD MORE TO ADD, BUT LIKE I SAID, I DON'T KNOW ANYONE FROM IRIS, BUT I DO HEAR THAT THEY ARE A SMALL BUT TIGHT-KNIT CLAN.

ORALE, PROPS TO VARRIO IRIS AVENUE 13 INSANE FAMILIA

VARRIO DEL SOL 13

VARRIO DEL SOL RIFA

-a fictional story-

A.k.a. DEL SOL 13

Established? From the late 1960’s / early 1970’s.

Old Bandana color: Amarillo

Logo: Sol Azteca

Cliques:

Zone / Territory

DEL SOL BARRIO IS AT THE CROSS-ROADS OF SOUTH SAN DIEGO. IT IS LOCATED RIGHT IN-BETWEEN ALL THE OTHER MAJOR COMMUNITIES OF SOUTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY. CHULA VISTA AND OTAY TO THE NORTH; IMPERIAL BEACH, NESTOR AND PALM CITY TO THE WEST; SAN YSIDRO TO THE SOUTH, AND OTAY MESA TO THE EAST. SO, IF YOU WANT TO GET AROUND FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER VIA THE STREETS DOWN HERE, IT WILL MORE THAN LIKELY TAKE YOU THROUGH SOME OF DEL SOL’S STREETS.

THE MAIN CORE OF DEL SOL VARRIO RUNS PARALLEL ALONG THE STRETCH OF DEL SOL BLVD, FROM THE 805 FREEWAY ON THE EAST ALL THE WAY TO BEYER BOULEVARD ON THE WEST, AND FROM THE 905 FREEWAY ON THE SOUTH ALL THE WAY NORTH TO PALM AVENUE. THAT’S A REAL NICE CHUNK OF TERRITORY WHICH DEL SOL CONTROLA! BUT IN THIS LARGE ZONA THERE’S MORE THAN A FEW LITTLE STAND-ALONE SECTIONED OFF NEIGHBORHOOD AREAS, WHICH IF THESE WERE LOCATED ANYWHERE ELSE, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE IN LA, OR IN SOUTHEAST SAN DIEGO, EACH ONE OF THOSE LITTLE AREAS COULD EACH HAVE EASILY BEEN VARRIOS OF THEIR OWN.

DEL SOL ZONE NEIGHBORHOOD IS A MECCA FOR PARTIES; THERE’S ALWAYS SOME BORLOS GOING ON IN THAT ZONE. MAYBE THAT’S WHY THERE’S SO MANY WRITER KREWS ALWAYS BOMBING AROUND THERE AS WELL, AND DON'T FORGET ~> DEL SOL’s NEIGHBORHOOD IS ALSO HOME TO OUR OTHER BROWN RAZA ~> THE PINOYS ADDING THEIR OWN FLAVOR AS WELL.

OVER TIME, A LOT OF PEOPLE TRYING TO CLAIM THIS OR THAT HAVE COME AND GONE FROM THESE TERRENOS, BUT IT WAS SIMPLE MATH; IF THEY GREW UP AMONG DEL SOL, THEN THEY WOULD EVENTUALLY GET FOLDED INTO DEL SOL, BUT IF NOT, THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO GET EVICTED, BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT WORKS JUST LIKE EVERYWHERE ELSE AND JUST LIKE IN EVERY OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN A YOUNG CROWD, A TAGGER KREW, A LOKOS CLIKA Y WHOMEVER ELSE ~> THEY EVENTUALLY GET BROUGHT INTO THE LOCAL OLD VARRIO OR ELSE; YA SABES!

FOR EXAMPLE, THE ONCE UPON A TIME STAND ALONE RUFF CITY 13, FORMERLY A TAGGER CLIQUE BORN IN THE 1990’s KNOWN THEN AS THE SOUTH SIDE ROUGHNECKS, A.k.a. ROUGH RIDERS. BUT THEN SSR FORMALIZED AND STARTED BANGING AS THE RUFF CITY LOCOS AROUND THE YEARS 2000/2001. RCLS THEN GOT NUTTIER AND STARTED HAVING SOME MAD PLEITOS WITH DEL SOL AND WITH THE PALM CITY LOCOS, AS WELL AS WITH THE CRAZY ASS (LATINOS) LOCOS. SOMETIME AFTER ALL THOSE BEEFS STARTED HAPPENING ON THE REAL, THEY GOT THE GREEN LIGHT AND WERE BLESSED WITH THE 13 TO BECOME FULL-FLEDGED SOUTH SIDERS. A FEW YEARS LATER RC13 CLIQUED UP WITH DEL SOL AND FOR A TIME THEY WOULD HIT UP THE WALLS TOGETHER, BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED AND THEY WENT AT IT AGAIN WITH EACH OTHER; YOU COULD EVEN READ IT ON THE WALLS WITH THEM BOTH CROSSING EACH OTHER OUT ON THOSE VERY SAME WALLS ON WHICH JUST RECENTLY BEFORE, THEY HAD BEEN HITTING UP TOGETHER. THEN ALL THAT SEEMS TO HAVE GOTTEN SQUASHED AND RC13 WAS BROUGHT BACK INTO DEL SOL, BUT AS A CLIQUE THIS TIME. ONE THING IS FACT FOR SURE, AND THAT IS THAT RUFF CITY IS TECHNICALLY WITHIN DEL SOL’s TERRITORY (EAST OF PICADOR BLVD, ALONG DEL SOL BLVD), THEREFORE IT WAS LOGICAL FOR THE ONCE ROUGH RIDERS TO HAVE EVOLVED WITH THE TIMES, GOING ON THROUGH THE PAINS NECESSARY AND FINALLY SETTLING DOWN AS THEE NOTORIOUS DEL SOL 13 RUFF CITY LOCOS CLIQUE, SO I'VE HEARD.

NO DOUBT AT ALL THAT DEL SOL MUST BE ONE OF THE MOST CONSISTENT ACTIVE VARRIOS IN THE STREETS OF SOUTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Y TAMBIEN ONE OF THE MOST PROLIFIC WALL WRITERS. I THINK, NEXT TO OTAY X3, SIDRO AND OTNC, DEL SOL NEVER STOPS HITTING UP THE WALLS. EVERYWHERE YOU GO YOU’RE BOUND TO SEE FRESH NEW DEL SOL HIT UPS, AND IF YOU RIDE THROUGH AND STRIKE UP YOURS, BE TRUCHA BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW; AT THE VERY LEAST, REST ASSURED THAT YOURS WILL BE CROSSED OUT BY THE NEXT MORNING. THAT’S HOW MUCH DEL SOL PATROLS THEIR ZONE, AND WELL, THE NEWS WHICH ARE ON THE HISTORY PAGES TELLING THE TALES OF SOME OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS DEL SOL HOMEBOYS IN RECENT DECADES IS VERY WELL DOCUMENTED ALREADY, SO THERE’S NO NEED TO GET INTO ESA CONVERSACION RIGHT HERE, I THINK (?) BUT FOR HISTORY PURPOSES, ORALE PUES ESE, IF YOU WANT, PONLE! OTHERWISE, PLAIN AND SIMPLE VARRIO HISTORY IS MUCH APPRECIATED.





ANYWAYS, THERE’S A LOT OF DOWN FIRME RAZA IN DEL SOL, AND IT IS A WELL RESPECTED VARRIO AMONG DIEGO's SOUTH SIDERS. FACT!

BARRIO RED STEPS

BARRIO RED STEPS

BARRIO LOGAN aka BARRIO RED STEPS is what the West Side of the Chicano Community of Logan Heights is called.

Barrio Logan Red Steps was split off from the rest of LOGAN HEIGHTS when Interstate 5 was constructed and divided the community in two halves.

El Barrio Logan is home to the Logan Heights RED STEPS Ganga, which is a clika of the much larger BARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS GANG. In addition to the Red Steps clique, LH in present times is composed of the cliques LH30TA, LH33RD, LH13LS and the LH Clika located in East Side San Diego. Another prior olden times clika were the LH32 Luckys which is no longer active.

Barrio Logan Red Steps had its origins with an earlier gang named LOS CHERRIES way back in the 1950s. Los Cherries took their name from some big ass painted Red Steps of this huge house which used to be on the north side of Island Avenue, between 24th & 25th Streets. This house with the painted red steps was located in the area where today’s current pedestrian sky-bridge crosses-over Interstate 5, between Logan Avenue & Crosby Street (re-named Cesar Chavez in 1995).

When Interstate 5 was built in 1963, the house & the Steps were torn down; nevertheless, the new 1960s generation of Cherries adopted the name Red Steps for their new Clika as the older generation of Cherries faded into history.
By the time when Chicano Park was created in 1969/70, the Red Steps clika had long before already become fully incorporated into the united Barrio Logan Heights Gang. This Greater LHTS Gang by uniting over the years between the late 1950s & early 1960s, all the gangs in the area like Los OSOS, Los LOBOS, Los CHICANOS, Los COYOTES and Los CHERRIES; created One United LH Barrio. . . (Note: In the middle of Chicano Park today, there is a mural that reads “BARRIOS UNIDOS LOGAN”. This is said to be in reference not so much as to Chicano Barrios in general, but more indicative of Logan’s UNITED Varrios). The old Cherries Gang thus gave way to the new LH Red Steps clika which has remained named as such onto present times, and it also has become one of the strongest Gang-Cliques all around. The RED STEPS have with time, added a new younger sub-clique to their ranks called Chicano Park Boys (CPB) and their confederates, the Feeling So Irie Boys Krew (FSI).

The RED STEPS Barrio is concurrent with the boundaries of Barrio Logan itself; the boundaries being one and the same; 16th Street/Commercial Street to the north, 32nd Street to the south, Harbor Drive/Old 101 Highway to the west and Interstate 5 to the east. The Red Steps Barrio is also home to the well-known famed Chicano Park (CP aka CHP) which was built right under the Coronado Bay Bridge (constructed in 1969/70). Chicano Park criss+crosses the RS neighborhood through several streets, semi-dividing the Barrio in half with its many bridge concrete pillars.

This is a small story of Barrio Logan Heights Red Steps as has been understood by yours truly in small-talk conversations here and there, as well as from the received input from some of you out there. I hope that Homies from Logan can visit with us on the Brown Kingdom and speak for themselves as to their history and correct me on any honest mistakes committed.

LAS PALMAS
Varrio LAS PALMAS was an old varrio located in the South San Diego neighborhood of Palm City. The old varrio extended south of the Otay River marshland area, all the way to Coronado Avenue, centered around Palm Avenue and Harris Avenue. The neighborhood once reached as far west to 19 Street (present day Saturn Blvd). The old varrio was in time first broken up with the construction of Interstate 5, which was built right through the middle of the neighborhood and sliced it up into two halves. The western part of the varrio (west of I-5) was almost completely torn down and new development was raised up. Then when the San Diego Trolley line was built, another chunk of its neighborhood was destroyed. The Trolley line itself cut the varrio in half again. On the east side of the tracks new housing now stands. But on the west side of the tracks there still remains plenty of unpaved (dirt) streets even to this day. South of Palm Avenue the grounds there exhibit a mix of older homes and newer apartment buildings south along the back streets from Harris Avenue. Varrio Las Palmas survived all the way up to the very early 80s, but it has now given way to the younger generation of Raza that claims Palm City From Hell (Familia Hispana). In its final days, one could see nice firme big block Old Stilo Placasos on the walls as you rode past on the freeway or the trolley line. Further south along the 19 Street neighborhood, west of the I-5, La Raza gave birth to the Varrio NESTOR 19ST, in what was once inhabited by vatos that claimed South San Diego. From west of the I-5 and south of Palm Avenue, Varrio NSTR (Nestor Nineteenth STreet Rifa) governs the land.

VARRIO POSOLE
Varrio POSOLE, sometimes spelled Pozole, is a real old varrio that dates back to the 1920s. This varrio is well known and heard about through out Califas and in la torcida. Posole is said to be in their sixth or seventh generation of vatos representing their terreno. From old times the initials for the varrio were PSL and PZL, but in these later tiempos the initials VP, VPL and VPLS for Varrio Posole Locos are being used. The olden varrio is located right before you hit Camp Pendleton, immediately east of Interstate 5 and north of Mission Avenue; just south of the old San Luis Mission Road (present day 76 Expressway), centered around Balderama Park. Their borders today can be said to extend all the way south to Oceanside Blvd, and east all the way to Mesa Road. Posole claims East Side because they are in what back in them times was considered the east side of Oceanside.

LOMITA VILLAGE 13

A.k.a. Lomita Varrio 70



LOMITA VILLAGE

LVR ~ Lomita Village Rifa.. The “R” is not used regularly in order to avoid confusion with Linda Vista Rifa

LV13 ~ Lomita Village 13.. The “Varrio” started out in the late 1950s, hence the “13”

LV70 ~ Lomita Village 70.. Sometimes referred to as Lomita Varrio Setentas

LV gets its name straight off from the community in the far East Side of San Diego, located..

N) Jamacha Road
S) Skyline Drive
W) Meadowbrook Drive
E) Billow Drive

The heart of the Varrio is Lomita Park

Lomita Village presently claims “SOUTH EAST” because the neighborhood is located in the southeastern part of San Diego’s greater east side.






Original veteranos cliques from the L V

BASTONES ~ 1950s-1960s
DUBONETTS ~ 1950s-1960s
JURYMEN ~ 1960s

The Jurymen were the last of the old clubs from Lomita.
All the original cliques each used to sport their clique name on their club jackets together with the neighborhood name.

LV13 put in mad work since the late 50s, and the two decades prior to the 7’Os. Contrary to popular belief, LV13 & LV70 are not synonymous. In fact, Setentas is a “clique” from LV13. The 7’Os were sparked up by some vatos from Comptone Varrio 70 who were from the Lomita neighborhood and mixed in. LV13 and LV70 at one time did not even get along that much, but in 1978 an LV13 homeboy wasted a jura, and that brought down the heat on the varrio. Things got real hot and homies were getting torcidos and sent up to do long sentences. Right around that year is when the 7’Os Chicos started putting in work together with the LV13 Diablos & LiL Spiders. As time went by, more and more LV13 homeboys were either getting smoked, locked up or going into retirement, and so the youngsters kinda forgot about the older gente, but the Chicos kept the Village on deck. Eventually the LV13 kinda took a back seat to the LV70, but don’t let that confuse you because there’s still plenty of LV’s that don’t claim 70s. There’s stil homies around that claim LV13 NOMAS! And just to re-iterate what has already been said, the LV oldie cliques never claimed LV70, PERIOD!

VARRIO MISSION BAY IS TECHNICALLY WITHIN THE SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY OF “PACIFIC BEACH” WHICH SURROUNDS THE FIRME LOOKING MISSION BAY PARK ON IT’S NORTHERN SHORE BORDERS.

VARRIO MB IS SAID TO HAVE BEEN KICK STARTED BY HOMEBOYS FROM LA BIG HAZARD DE RAMONA GARDENS EAST LOS BACK IN THE LATE SIXTIES.. BACK IN THEM YEARS, THE BARRIO ALREADY HAD PLENTY OF RAZA IN THE LOCAL STREETS, BUT THEM WERE DIFFERENT TIMES AND THE FULL IMPACT FROM THE VARRIO WORLD HAD YET TO TAKE ROOT. THAT’S HOW “MISSION BAY HAZARD” CAME TO BE SET UP IN THE BAY.

LA RAZA FROM MB BACK THEN HAD IT COOL WITH THE NEIGHBORS FROM VARRIO CLARAS (CLAIREMONT) JUST FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FREEWAY. THE VATOS FROM CLARAS USED TO COME DOWN AND KICK IT WITH THE LOCALS AT “THE COURTS” (ROSE CREEK BASKETBALL COURTS) LOCATED BY BOND STREET UNDERNEATH THE GRAND AVENUE PUENTE.

PRIMERO, THAT’S HOW THE VATOS FROM MB AND CLARAS GOT ALONG, AND ANY PLEITO BETWEEN THEM WAS HANDLED THE MAN’S WAY, A PUROS CHINGADAZOS. THAT OF COURSE WAS THE WAY, UNTIL CUETES AND FUSCAS GOT INTRODUCED, AND FROM THEN ON, BLOODSTAINS ON THE CONCRETE IS HOW THE RIVALRY ENDED UP TURNING INTO.



THE COURTS WERE ONE OF THE HANG OUTS FOR MB RAZA, BUT THERE WERE OTHER ONES. ANOTHER OLD SCHOOL HANG OUT WAS “LA CAHUILLA,” THE 2300 BLOCK SECTION OF GRAND AVENUE SO NAMED BECAUSE OF THE OLD DILIPATED CANTONES AND RUN DOWN NITTY-GRITTY LOOKING STREET THAT IT WAS, REMINDED THE OLD MB BARRIO RESIDENTS OF THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT IN THE NEAR-BY BORDER TOWN OF TIJUANA.

THE MB RAZA THAT KICKED IT ON THIS BLOCK WERE OLD SCHOOL AND THEY TOO BEGAN TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE CLOSE-BY MORLEY STREET VATOS FROM LINDA VISTA. THESE MB VATOS SPAWNED THE CLIQUE KNOWN TO THIS DAY AS THEE “GRAND AVENUE BOYS”. AND IT WAS THESE SAME G’AVE BOYS THAT HAD PLEITO WITH ANOTHER MB CLIQUE OF IT’S DAY KNOWN AS THE “132 DEAD ENDS" WHO WERE FROM THE AREA AROUND FIGUEROA AND BOND STREETS IN THE CENTRO OF THE MB BARRIO.



AT FIRST, THERE WERE SERIO PLEITOS BETWEEN THE G’AVE BOYS AND THE 132 DEAD ENDS, AND WHEN THE TMC (THE MAGICIANS CLUB) LOCOS CAME INTO THE MIX IN THE LATER 1970s. THEY TOO AND THE DEAD ENDS HAD PLEITO WITH THE MB LOCOS CLIQUE THAT SPAWNED OFF FROM THE MB HAZARD.

THE ORIGINAL TMC’s ARE SAID TO HAVE CAME DOWN FROM L.A. BUT SOON THEY STARTED RECRUITING BECOMING ONE OF THE BIGGEST MB CLIQUES OF THE TIMES. ALL THESE MB CLIQUES BEEFED WITH EACH OTHER, UNTIL THEIR FEUDS TURNED DEADLY, AND THAT’S WHEN THEY ALL GOT TOGETHER AND DECIDED TO SETTLE DOWN VERSUS EACH OTHER AND FORM THE OFFICIAL “VARRIO MISSION BAY”. BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY ALL BECAME PART OF VARRIO MISSION BAY 13, THEY ALL STILL KEPT REPRESENTING THEIR OWN BLOCK OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, EVEN ‘TILL THIS DAY. IT ALL STILL GOES DOWN AS TO WHAT STREET YOU LIVE ON AND THAT’S HOW THEY BANG IN THE “WEST BAY.”



BY THE MID 1980s, VARRIO MB HAD TWO BIG CLIQUES. THE “LOCOS” AND THE “GRAND AVE BOYS.” BUT IN THE 1990s TWO NEW CLIQUES SPRUNG UP, THE “BOND STREET BOYS” AND THE DELREY STREET BOYS. EACH ONE OF THEM MUCH SMALLER THAN THEIR OLDEN CONTEMPORARIES BUT KEEPING THE MB VARRIO GOING. A LATTER CLIQUE THAT CAME UP ARE THE “BAY RIDERS,” THESE HOMIES STARTED OUT AS TAG’BANGERS HITTING THE FREEWAYS AND FAR AWAY WALLS AND ALL THAT, BUT THEY TOO CAME TO REPRESENT “THE BAY.” THE BAY RIDERS HOWEVER CAME TO BE BASED ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE FREEWAY IN CLAIREMONT. BUT THIS WAS NOT OUT OF THE ORDINARY SINCE VMB CAME TO OUTGROW ITS OLD BORDERS, BECOMING THE SECOND BIGGEST VARRIO OF THE WEST SIDE IN TERMS OF NUMBERS, AND WITH THE NUMBERS, THEY TOO SPILLED OUT FROM THEIR OLD SECLUDED LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD INTO THE NEAR-BY GREATER AREAS.

VMB DID NOT CLAIM NO “SIDE” UNTIL THE 1980’s. THAT’S WHEN “SIDE” THIS OR “SIDE” THAT CAME TO FORM PART OF THE VARRIO STRUCTURE ALL AROUND. BEFORE THEN, THERE WERE VARRIOS IN SAN DIEGO THAT CLAIMED OR BASED THEIR NAME ON A LOCALITY “SIDE” OF TOWN, BUT IT WAS NOT A BIG THING FOR MOST. THAT IS, UNTIL THE 1980s, AND MB WENT THAT WAY TOO. MB WENT ON TO CLAIM WEST SIDE JUST THE SAME AS THE OTHER VARRIOS LIKE WOP TOWN, OLD TOWN SD, LINDA VISTA AND CLARAS 13.

AS THE YEARS WENT BY, VMB ADDED MORE AND MORE ENEMIES TO THEIR LIST. WHAT STARTED OUT AS NEAR-BY BEEFS WITH CLARAS AND LINDA VISTA, EXTENDED OUT TO INCLUDE OTHERS LIKE WOP TOWN AND EVEN FAR AWAY VARRIOS FROM THE “EAST SIDE” AND “SOUTH EAST” SAN DIEGO AREAS.



VARRIO MISSION BAY IN THIS NEW MILENIO, NOW FOUR DECADES LATER, CONTINUES TO HAVE A FULL REPRESENTATION ON THE STREETS AND IN THE PINTAS.

VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS

.



Here’s a little something on San Diego’s “South East”
VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS


Logan Heights proper is a combination of 2 communities, BARRIO LOGAN and MEMORIAL PARK, which together make up the entity known as LOGAN HEIGHTS

VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS has 5 different cliques that represent the Varrio to the fullest..

RED STEPS
LH30TA
LH33RD
LH13Ls
LHClika

And each of those cliques have their own distinct “Homegrounds”

(1) The first one is BARRIO LOGAN

N ~ Commercial Street (The Tracks)
W ~ Main Street
S ~ 32nd Street
E ~ Interstate 5

BARRIO LOGAN is synonymous with RED STEPS. So if you hear someone say BARRIO LOGAN or BARRIO RED STEPS, that’s what they’re saying.. They’re saying that they are from the barrio west of the 5 Freeway surrounding Bay Bridge Park, a.k.a. CHICANO PARK.

(2) The second is the LH30TA zone, which is synonymous with the area surrounding Memorial Park.. centered at 30th Street and Ocean View Blvd.

N ~ Commercial Street (The Tracks)
W ~ 28th Street
S ~ Interstate 5
E ~ Bancroft Street, and the 15 Freeway down through National Avenue

(3) LH33RD neighborhood lies down a barranca (small ravine area) on the northeast corner of Logan Heights.. in-between Bancroft Street and the 15 Freeway, running from north to south all along 33Rd Street.

N~ K street (cul-de-sac north of Imperial avenue)
W ~ Bancroft Street (ravine)
S~ Ocean View Blvd.
E~ 15 Freeway


(4) In-between .. (N) Commercial Street/The Tracks, (E) 28th Street, and (SW) Interstate 5.. is the proper “Logan Heights” defined zone on the maps. This zone is inhabited by everyone from LHTS (RS, 30TA, and 13Ls).

The LH’13 Locos are the only ones of the LH cliques which do not have a solid defined established neighborhood.. LH13Ls are simply from all over Logan Heights.. LH13Ls is rumored to have had some trouble being accepted as a bonafide LHTS clique in their beginning porque the rest of LHTS didn’t really consider them raised RS, 30TA or 33RD.. But 13Ls earned their respect, and they are now clearly a bonafide LHTS clique.

(5) Logan Heights “CLIKA”..
This 5Th Logan clique neighborhood is far away from Logan Heights proper.. LH’Clika is located in “EAST SIDE SAN DIEGO”.. LHC was set up by vatos from LHRS & LH3OTA in the Colina Del Sol neighborhood on the East Side.. thus making VLHts, San Diego’s only varrio to actually have a well established territory in two separate areas of the city.

N~ El Cajon Blvd.
E~ 54TH Street
S~ University Avenue
W~ Euklid Avenue


Note; All 5 cliques from LHTS get along with each other.. They don’t have pleito, even though they do compete with each other as to which is the baddest.. but for the most part they’re cool with each other.. in fact, Red Steps is said to be propping up Treinta y Tres, and bringing them back from the dead.

..

There used to be another clique from Logan Heights which was not part of VARRIO LHTS.. They were the Logan Heights “LUCKIES” from the triangular shaped neighborhood zone between Commercial, I-5 and 28th.. They were an independent and non affiliated clique that went by LH’LKS and Calle Veinte y Seis "LHC26LKS".. Circa 1960s to 1981/early 80s (?).. The ”LUCKYS are defunt now, but that’s where they were reputed to have been their stomping grounds.

SOUTH BAY / SOUTH SIDE SAN DIEGO

SOxBAY, the “SOUTH SIDE” of SAN DIEGO;
Rich in the tradition of the Varrios..

With old neighborhoods and antiguo Raza that cliqued up and set up their Varrios long ago.

Varrios which are now on the list amongst the very olden ones of all thee "1902" Condado.

Varrios even as old as those from other Sides of the County;
Like those from
BARRIO LOGAN,
BARRIO SHERMAN,
LA COLONIA EDEN GARDENS
or ENSENITAS TORTILLA FLATS

All of these same Olden SOUTHxBAY Varrios..

Like
SIDRO
DEL SOL
IMPERIAL
OTAY
PALMAS
NESTOR
OTNC
VCV

~> Survive going strong..
even onto this present age

How and when did it all start out down here?
It is hard to say.
It's all been around for a long ass time.
Part of it you can tell by the plenty numeros of oldie vatos still kicking it in these parts of the Old Land!..

The attitude i dare say,
has been here
from as far back as there’s been raza staking claim to a piece of ground in the Southwest
The Southwest called ~> AZTLAN..
and that goes back, way back..
way way back in time.

From old beginner times, these local grounds have been a cross-road between the two Republics of European-White-America and European-Mestizo-Mexico.
Both cultures threw some in there and spiced up the soul, helping out to lift up the heads of the local vatos.
High on pride and commitment to family, they carried themselves and went about their days laboring in the fields, working in the packing plants, working in construction projects, or on the docks.
After work they would always find some time to socialize, drinking some brews, puffing on frajos, on the strings and cords with their liras serenading the ladies with their romantics, or singing their sadness to the night.
A sad but happy hard life they lived, their days and nights were always filled with laughter, but filled with tears as well.
Their sad souls, their rough faces, their strong defiant and valiant attitude towards hardship, their commitment to one another, it all was watched and learned from, it all was deposited on the hearts and minds of the next generation who witnessed them, and the next generation tried to duplicate it all, in their own version, during their own growing up times.

Dirt streets criss-crossed the neighborhoods, a clear sign to outsiders that they'd entered the poor side of the town.
That’s what they were originally, isolated little villages on the outskirts of the society-in-charge of business and politics.
Poor little enclaves called Barrios and Colonias, soon to be marked for destruction by city planners and the wheels of time.
Nevertheless, the Low-Down Raza from the Poor-Sides grew ever stronger in the Califas style that sparked up the humble rebel-in-them.
They got into car clubs, picked up motorcycles, dressed down and hit the dancehalls.
They blazed up and hanged out with the crowd, kicking it at the corner, at the park or at the pool hall.
The times kept bringing on fast changes to the Barrios.
The music sounds, the fashion trends, the city landscape, the population mix., everything and all; the tic tocs of creeping time moving them fast-forward into the future, not giving much chance for the younger generations to fully grasp things from the old side of the fence, and so they adopted what they could, and disguised the new..
Raza Loca de Califas they became, first Pachucos, then Cholos, and now Brown Pride Gangsters!

American Gangsterism captivated and seduced the Vatos Locos, one generation after another.
Just like the rest from all over the Brown Nation of Aztlan, they carried inside their veins the fiery blood of a warrior past, and so they created their modern tribes, their modern neighborhood clans.
Their attitude remained the same ole one, that of a Mexican trapped inside America.
Mexico forgot about them, and America denied them.
Not from here, nor from there, they found themselves as from neither one;
And so they went about in creating their own little countries in the form of Varrios..
They gave their allegiance, and devoted themselves to one another, backing each other against any and all enemies.
As time went by, little by little, they built up their own sub-culture.
They transformed their dress code to conform to the flamboyant look;
They re-invented the English and Spanish language and applied a slang version to their everyday talk.
El Vato Loco drapped himself with the gangster image of the American Roaring 20s and 30s, but a-la-Mexican version.
Rebels of society who strolled around, and rolled around, defining their space, marking their territory, establishing their borders.
Going places, they’d run into hassles.
Rumbles and throwing down with others from around near-by became the thing.
Soon, street warfare between Brown Raza replaced fighting for racial space, and soon enough, the Varrios became fully focused on each other.
Their rivalries rose to a level of hatred and violence for which there is no end in sight.
The toe to toe, the fists and kicks gave way to knives and chains;
Knives and chains in turn gave rise to guns and rifles;
And now automatics and high-power calibers reign supreme.
What was once about your street, your friends, your space in this great little big world, became ever more encroached upon by new streets and new faces, faces with new ideas and aspirations for life.

The old nostalgia is becoming but a faded memory, seldom remembered in the concrete jungle rat-race.
Thee rat-race virus, unstoppable in its invasion and corruption of a vato's soul!

The SOxBAY first crazy vatos are lost to recorded history.
Few records exist other than a few newspaper articles pertaining to “criminal” activity.
The rest comes from a few old heads that can tell you the tales from the hood in small talk personal conversation.
But it is said that amongst the first to organize into what later gave rise to the Varrios of today, are said to be those like THEE IMPERIALS from Imperial Beach, the VULTURES from San Ysidro, and the ANCHOR BOYS from National City.
A later generation like the COACHMEN from Sidro, and the YATOS from Otay are credited to be from the actual generation that cliqued up and formed the Varrios as we know them today..

IMP13, IMPERIAL
SYR, SIDRO
O13, OTAY
OTNC, VIEJO
VLPR, PALMAS
VCV, CHULA VISTA
DSR, DEL SOL
and NST, NESTOR

are listed as the oldest of the SOxBAY.

These SOxBAY Varrios like others from other parts of the County and State, were able to maintain themselves old-school and traditional;
Each one was able to keep their locals united, and each new Varrio clique gave their first allegiance to the Varrio, the clique came second!

The SOxBAY varrios were able to keep it together like that for several decades, all the way up to the late 1970s.
But by then, several factors had begun to take a toll on their little nations.
The freeway system was built over Barrio lands, destroying whole sections of the neighborhoods, creating physical barriers and divisions between their communities.
Palm City, Chula Vista, National City, Nestor and San Ysidro were the hardest hit by the criss-crossing freeway system.
New housing developments and commercial business complexes arose here and there and everywhere.
The population growth brought tons of new faces and skin shades, and different attitudes to the sacred grounds.
The later trolley line further added a boundary for some.

Whereas before all the locals from each Varrio started out in the same Elementary school and Junior High;
Now, there were many different schools in each town.
The nostalgia of the Old Times had passed and the new sounds, the new garb, the new rides, new trends, new this, new that and new everything propagated by the media and Hollywood in full partnership with business entrepreneurs, had propelled the younger minds into a wide diversity of styles.
The 1980s killed the old and propelled the Varrios into a new era, an era with few rules and deviant attitudes.
Too many vatos going in all different directions, and too many vatos coming in from other places making the SOxBAY their stomping grounds.
Vatos from other SD areas, vatos from LOS, vatos from Tijuas and Mexico, vatos from all over have come down over the years and added their differences to the mix.

The Varrios remain still as one, but the Barrios themselves are far from that.

Law enforcement took its toll on the Varrios as well.
An abundance of resources were put into play..
Once an area was targeted for “clean up” ..
so many Homies began to get locked up for long ass years at a time;
Thus leaving less and less solid vatos on the streets to demonstrate some ole school clecha and recruit.

The effects of so many changes became something of a free-for-all for vatos to go about it any which way that suited them best.
Rockers, Party Crews, Taggers, Stoners, Rock-A-Billy’s and others pulled people away from the Varrios;
And the once huge numbers a Varrio pulled, dropped down big time.
The many new crews that sprung up bordering on the old streets..
in time also gave rise to their own new Treces.

And..

After all is said and done, suffice to say that even with all that heavy chet that has come down on these old grounds..

~> the Old Varrios continue to come out strong..
Defying it all:

Including time itself!

Can’t no one claim that the SOxBAY / SOxSIDE can’t hang with the best..
Because they are from The Best!

From an OLD GUARD of BARRIOS that transcends the decades!

DEDICATED TO THEE OLD SOxBAY VARRIOS . . .

PUT THEM UP


TODO CYCO!

ANGEL in DISGUISE

Like a fix of heroin
That brown sugar smack
Running through my mainline
Hype me out in a flash
What a pleasurable rush

Like a cool juice moment
Got me feeling like superman
As if I’m made to everlast
As if nothing could defeat me
Not even kryptonite

Like a line or two of snow white
Disipating my dread away
High steppin’ into the night
Numbing my stress away
Euphoria running high

Like a trip on the blue dragon
A drop of purple haze
Hearing colors, seeing sounds
On a psychedelic voyage
Hallucinating under the stars

Like cannabis sativa
An eerie dope gangster
Flaming up that bowl of grass
Puffin’ herbal essence
All fumed up on cloud 9

Like a rockstar glued to the pipe
What a grandiose sensation
What an exhilarating body high
An intense puff invasion
Giving me a supersonic rush

Like chugging down some buds
Or like downing some hard tonic
Giving me a nice buzz
Spinning my head around
Warming up my blood hot inside

Like inhaling some crystal, crank or ice
Blasting me off from sundown to sunrise
Got a mothafucka all wired up
Feeling no more appetite
Feeling like a zombie, but all speedo up

Like dropping down some ecstasy
Aphrodisiac scooby snacks
Feeling me up with intimacy
Magnifying my pleasure
Giving me a rock hard on

Your love got me all doped out
Your love is like a natural high
Your love is like the fumes that fill my lungs
Blowing my mind
As if your love really was

I need your love so bad
I need it all the time
For the rest of my natural life
You got me all fucked up inside
Looking up at you like the rainbow stars above

I feel like I’m in heaven
Like if I’m in paradise
In a trance like state of mind
Sleepwalking, experiencing flashbacks
Your love got me feeling alright

On a natural mystic voyage
Gots me feeling so high
Stimulating my senses
Arousing me all night
What a wonderful energy blast

Got me all empathetic to sex and love
Feeling all intimate
You talking ‘bout all that love
Got me on a real sex drive
But like all dope lies

Your love is like an Angel. .
A Devil in Disguise!!!
