Ybor City has seen it's ups and downs. It became Tampa's entertainment district in the 90's. Today it competes with nearby Channelside with both areas linked by the trolly that runs between them.  In the 1980's the biggest happening in Ybor was the El Goya, the largest gay club north of Ft. Laud...
