"Nice location because it's near the Gaslamp but isn't IN the Gaslamp"
This area is near Seaport Village, which is sort of a business visitor/tourist destination. So, the actual neighborhood quiets down at night, and most food/drink establishments close early. But, it's within walking distance to the Gaslamp and doesn't have all of the shenanigans of the Gaslamp. The train goes right by that area, however, so if you plan to live or stay there you should be aware the train whistle can be very disruptive at night and in the evenings.
