In just three weeks, we’ve documented more than 30 blocks of messed up San Diego sidewalk with our photo blog, The Stumblr.

So far, most of the photos we have are clustered south of Interstate 8 in older, mid-city neighborhoods. It’s too soon to tell whether sidewalks are worse there, which would reflect San Diego’s traditional dividing line for politics, wealth and lots of other things, or whether we just have a lot of people sending us photos from those areas.

You can help us out by continuing to submit your shabby sidewalk photos. Please email them to me at

We’ll be updating the map as we add new entries to The Stumblr.
