Eclipse Aviation, Kirtland Air Force Base, Sandia National Laboratories, the Central New Mexico Community College main campus, the Albuquerque International Sunport, University Stadium, Isotopes Park, and University Arena (“The Pit”) are located in the Southeast (SE) quadrant.
The Nob Hill and East Downtown neighborhoods lie along Central Avenue, the border between the Southeast and Northeast quadrants. The expensive residential developments of Four Hills, located in the Manzano foothills, Volterra, Willow Wood, and Ridgecrest are also located in this quadrant. In sharp contrast to these upscale developments, some of the most poverty-stricken neighborhoods in the city are also located in Southeast Albuquerque. During the past two decades, parts of the Southeast quadrant, mainly around Gibson Boulevard and Central Avenue, have become high crime areas. However, recent developments in the neighborhood such as the Cesar Chavez Community Center, Veterans’ Memorial, and the renovated Talin Market have shown that this area is reestablishing itself as one of many cultural centers in the city.
