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
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Santa Clara,
the Miramar Way / Halford Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the Miramar Way / Halford Ave
