City of San Jose is an economic, cultural, and political center of Silicon Valley. Located in the center of the Santa Clara Valley, on the southern shore of San Francisco Bay, San Jose is the largest city in Northern California. San Jose is one of the wealthiest major cities in the United States and the world, and has the third highest GDP per capita in the world, according to the Brookings Institution.
San Jose is a huge and sprawling city covering 175 square miles. Much of that area is given over to suburban style single family detached homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. Downtown San Jose and the neighborhoods surrounding it have a longer and more urban history, and thus more varied architecture. San Jose is actually the oldest European established civil (as opposed to military or religious) settlement in California. The Spanish government established it in 1777 to supply food for nearby missions.
San Jose itself has many neighborhoods/districts. They include Willow Glen, Almaden, Cambrian, Evergreen, Blossom Valley , the Rose Garden, Alum Rock, West San Jose, East side, Winchester and Alviso.
