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 Clayton,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
