About Jingletown: The neighborhood acquired its name at the turn of the century when Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would “jingle” in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area, signifying prosperity. As time went on the neighborhood went into disuse, but in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces. It is now a thriving artist community and one of the fastest growing arts district in the Bay Area. Visitors to the neighborhood will see colorful mosaic murals on converted warehouse walls, intersection street painting art and the Peterson Street Community Wall, a work which features murals by many of the residents of Jingletown.
