Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one

shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in San Bernardino,
the W 13Th St / N E St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
