Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice

might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Tucson,
the N 6th Ave / E Speedway Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
