The Frey Block Building contains a rich ethnic history. In its first few years, the Frey brothers from France operated a second hand store here. The site later housed several Oriental restaurants. Near one entrance, one can find a tile advertisement for the Kong Nam Cafe. In the 1950s, the corner became Crossroads Jazz Club, one of San Diego's most significant cultural landmarks. A showcase for local African-American talent, it was the birthplace of San Diego's jazz scene.
