What Bert Has To Say About Fresno Metro Area

Fresno is an agricultural and minor banking and financial center for the San Joaquin Valley, the southern half of California’s famed agricultural Central Valley. Agriculture and some light manufacturing round out the private employment picture. The California State University at Fresno, or “Fresno State,” adds some college-town life including sports and arts activities, but it doesn’t have much influence on the look or atmosphere of the town. The city core, once neglected, has been renovated and some projects are still underway. A few nice older neighborhoods spread north, but much of the rest of the area could be described as “functional” and not very interesting, and some are downright gritty.
