The Gateway to Mexico could be San Ysidro’s second name. The community has a strong retail sector with a large factory outlet mall. Here, single family homes in typical suburban style, welcome families with children. East San Ysidro Boulevard from Interstate 805 to the eastern end of Border Village Road has recently been redesigned. San Ysidro residents said they needed more places to sit outdoors, so they chose a novel proposal by well-known San Diego artist Victor Ochoa, who designed and completed seating in four public places. The seating areas are cast in concrete of Mesoamerican-era stepped shapes and embellished with mosaic tile. The public seating area has it’s own shade: a living tree growing through the piece to bring shade to anyone seated below. Ochoa named the spirited and functional pieces Arbol de la Vida, or Tree of Life.
