Owner description: A neon arch in the downtown area.

It is sad to see all that surrounds the 9th st. Downtown area of Modesto. It truly is a nice place to live. But the whole bus depot along with the large amount of bums walking all over the place repels any one coming from out of town. All of 9th st. is known for hookers and homeless drug addicts who give the city a bad name.

This iconic structure greets visitors to Modesto in grand style. It spans the street in sturdy welcome letting folks know that they have arrived in a town that values its resources.

It's almost embarrassing the way it looks and what it says. Is that the best Modesto can do? I would never take my guest from out of town to see it. Look ! An Arch! Wow!!!

I loved that the Modesto Arch still exists. My father inlaw designed this in the 50's as part of a contest. He went on to design many of the classic signs in Vegas. The downtown Modesto area has a lot of different restaurants that serve pretty good food so go see the arch and enjoy the area.
