"Nothing happens in McLane"

Nothing really happens in McLane. If you’re driving along Highway 180, you’ll think it’s another flat, dreary Fresno county neighborhood. The district is saturated with ragtag blocks, scattered parks and cheap one story homes. The area spans around 16 square miles with median household incomes ranging from $20,000 to $75,000. Those on the more affluent end usually settle down on the neighborhood’s easterly quadrant. This area offers a more polished version of McLane’s lower-class America.

McLane is distinctly residential, with its long unwelcoming streets, gritty house fronts and dusty patches of sidewalk. Deadening front lawns and unkempt front yards a re a rude awakening for locals and visitors alike. Residents here are firmly blue collar and largely mixed between white and hispanic backgrounds. Those of the minority tend to be of Asian or African American descent.

The district has an array of obscure attractions. First, is Fresno Yosemite International (coincidentally called FYI). The airport takes up a large portion of the neighborhood and offers civil-military, cargo and public air travel for the greater San Joaquin Valley area. Just adjacent to it is Fresno Airways Golf Course. However, the 18-hole course has garnered less than stellar reviews on golf course rating sites. Other areas of interest are McLane High School (just as tawdry as its town) and a veterinarians hospital that sits along the southwestern corner.
