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 St. Joseph,
the Vineland neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
