Stand in certain spots on the North Embarcadero, look east toward Little Italy, and your eyes might be dazzled by a sparkling tree on a large wall.
The glittery abstract tree decorates the west side of the Broadstone Little Italy building, near the corner of Grape Street and California Street. The branches of the mirror mosaic rise above train and trolley tracks. As the sun descends toward San Diego Bay, the silvery tree really shimmers and shines.
I’ve learned that the artist’s name is Stephanie Clair and that her piece is called The Shimmer Tree!
Here’s a pic I took a couple years later over the railroad tracks from a different angle…
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!

Have you seen the movie titled Little Italy?
No, I haven’t. Is it any good?
I can’t tell you, because I haven’t seen it either. Anyway, I fully trust its director (who gave us the unforgettabile Mystic Pizza), so I’m quite sure I would like it. Thank you for your reply! 🙂
