Buena Vista


General Overview of Buena Vista, California


Buena Vista is a neighborhood that is located in San Jose, California. In the past, it used to be a census-designated place, also known as a CDP, in Santa Clara County. However, it was absorbed into San Jose in the 2000s.


It’s located in between Downtown San Jose and the Valley Fair and Santana Row areas. In addition, because it’s also very close to Burbank and Midtown, Buena Vista is a good location in the sense that it’s not too far away from anything.


The population of Buena Vista currently is estimated to be 1,774 people. With the total area of Buena Vista being only 0.1 square miles, this gives it an extremely high population density of 18,497 people per square mile. This is an extremely high number, even for a city.


Buena Vista’s median age is 30 years, which is young.


It is over three years younger than the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years and is over 7 years younger than the national median age of 37.2 years. In comparison, the City of San Jose has a median age of 35.7 years.


Buena Vista is actually considered to be a historic neighborhood by many. The area is filled with a canopy of trees that beautifully line the streets, not to mention an abundance of classic architecture that is not found in much of the rest of San Jose.


There is also an organization in Buena Vista that is dedicated to preserving its history and natural charm, which is the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association, also known as BVNA.


The median household income in Buena Vista is $43,208. This is a low number, especially by Silicon Valley standards. However, given that the median age of Buena Vista is only 30 years old, it’s not too surprising. As the economy in the United States continues to recover, this number should increase accordingly.


In comparison, the national median household income is $53,046 and the State of California’s median household income is $58,328.


San Jose’s crime rate is not the best, especially with rising homicide rates in recent years that puts it in the top 40 in the United States. Yet the Buena Vista neighborhood has a much better crime rate than the city as a whole. Its crime rate index is 49, meaning that it’s safer than 49% of the cities in the United States.


To break down this number even further, consider that there’s a 1 in 247 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Buena Vista and a 1 in 32 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California has a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime. Buena Vista has slightly worse rates in both categories, but, as mentioned, in comparison to the rest of San Jose, it is safer.


First Security understands the security needs of Buena Vista and San Jose in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Buena Vista Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


First Security can help protect those in Buena Vista by providing the following specific security services:


  • Residential Security: Buena Vista’s residents have a young median age and a so-so median household income. And with a crime rate that is just slightly below the average of the State of California’s, there is some cause for concern. Property crimes in particular are an issue in the area, and it’s important that Buena Vista’s residents have the necessary security that they need. First Security Services can help to install advanced alarm systems. In addition, First Security Services can provide neighborhood patrol services.
  • Food & Beverage Security: San Jose as a city has an abundance of restaurants, bars, and cafes to choose from. Buena Vista obviously benefits from this, especially if you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine. Some of the notable places include: Taqueria Moreno, Eagle Restaurant & Cafe, Sliders Burgers, and 7 Stars Bar & Grill. First Security Services can provide security services during busy times, as well as after hours, ensuring that each and every place is fully secured.
  • Points of Interest Security: Buena Vista itself is a historic neighborhood. But there’s also a great deal of additional things to do, which includes: The Municipal Rose Garden, Los Gatos Creek Trail, and The Tech Museum of Innovation. There are always things to do in the entire area. Farmers markets are in abundance throughout San Jose, especially during the summer months.
  • 420 security: cannabis security plans


By hiring First Security, companies, organizations, and institutions, both of the private and public variety, will be able to ensure that they’re provided professional protection in regards to:


  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Intrusions
  • Employee Safety
  • Customer Safety
  • Violent Crimes


Residents in Buena Vista should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe. In addition, a great service, especially given how small Buena Vista  is, would be to install alarm systems through First Security.
