Welcome to the New Normal
Some folks would say that Southriver is not really a region of its own. But, rather, just the southern portion of Riverside. But that river does act as a natural barrier and while Riverside is more high end industrial, Southriver tends more to lower end industry. The city has been trying to clean it up – 10 years ago, they attracted a government research facility which located in the west portion of Southriver and cleaned up much of the area there. The east portion, bleeding into Greenville, tends towards more abandoned buildings and crime.
