Jacksonville: San Marco

The neighborhood of San Marco is my next stop on the tour of Jacksonville. During the mid 1920's, real estate developer Telfair Stockton proposed an 80-acre sudivision with a triangular shaped commercial district "San Marco Square" designed and named after the famous St. Mark's Square in Venice, a mile south of downtown on the east bank of the St. John's River. Today, San Marco lives on as a trendy entertainment, shopping, & arts district.
