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 Monica,
the Wilshire Blvd / 10th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
