Point Loma sits on the eastern side of a peninsula west of San Diego Harbor. Although the southern tip of the point, a third of the peninsula, is federal land, the land just north of it bordering the harbor is known as La Playa. Here you will find large estates with spectacular views (and prices). As you go north from La Playa you will find condominiums. Above La Playa is a newer neighborhood called the Wooded Area. Roseville and Loma Portal are to the north of the Wooded Area and La Playa. Fleetridge ia above Roseville and south of Loma Portal. Loma Portal has lovely homes, but airplanes from Lindberg Field fly directly overhead when taking off. When I taught at Point Loma High we had to stop talking each time a plane went over. On the busiest days we might lose 15 minutes of class time!
Today the city has provided residents with dual paned glass to cut noise indoors. Stricter regulations also allow residents some respite from the planes. The people who live here love it despite the planes. The majority of the peninsula rarely hears plane noise.
