I have lived in the Eastside all my life as well as most of my extended family. There is a sense of community here. Eastside San Jose has been characterized as the ghetto and crime filled part of the city, yet I believe the community has gotten better and is only positively growing. Residents for the most part are friendly. The schools in the area such as, Ida Jew Academies and Mount Pleasant High School which I have attended are great. There are tons of activities to do in the area. From going to parks, shopping, eating out at good restaurants, etc. Overall, I enjoy living in Eastside San Jose.

I love the diversity within this part of the city of San Jose. The majority of the communal centers are targeted towards the majority population of hispanic origin. There are a lot of immigrant families as there are new generations of being of ethnic-American. I would like to see more affordable whole foods markets within these areas to make accessibility for eating well. I want to see less fast food restaurants, and I want to see more updated technology to improve the area.
East San Jose is a rather quaint neighborhood. Wherever you go, there's usually some life to it - unless you go pretty far out, of course. With the numerous sidewalks, it's easy to walk around, though summer heat makes it a tad troublesome.

There's plenty of things to do here, and a wide variety of cuisine. Down my street is a Mexican, Chinese, Italian, and perhaps a Hawaiian place. There's a McDonald's and Starbucks nearly right next to each other. The retirement home is nearby, so those individuals don't have to walk out too far, should they choose to do so.
