Vallejo is a city in the North Bay Area approx. 34 miles north of San Francisco and 57 Miles South of Sacramento California. Vallejo was established in 1851 by Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo and was the capitol of California in 1852 and 1853. Vallejo started mainly as a spanish and native american city, then grew intensely over the years. Now Vallejo in 2007 has a population of around 125, 000 people, with a wide variety of nationalities predominately: White-30%, black 30%, asians 20% and hispanic(latino)-19%, others: native american, pacific islander.

Vallejo has a great diversity of people from rich to poor, and is about 40% lower class(10% of them in poverty) 40% middle class 10% wealthy. Some of the dangerous parts of the city are: Millerville, South Vallejo, Country Club Crest, Downtown-west, Hillcrest area among many other small parts, this is where there are stronger concentrations of crime.

Vallejo in 1987 at a population of 70,000 had 34 murders which was the record number for the city. For a city of approx. 450,000 people(Oakland, Ca) that would be approx. 204 murders which by far exceeds Oakland's highest homicide rate of 190. Vallejo has claimed by many to "become the next "Richmond" or "Oakland" which it already has been, but has made dramatic improvements. Many of the new residents of Vallejo do not know the history and cannot appreciate how far Vallejo has come. It was the Oakland or the Richmond of it's day and has dramatically improved over the years to homicide rates of 3 per year with a population of over 120,000 people. Other crimes such as thefts and burglaries are far above average, but overall the city has improved becoming a safer place to live.

Vallejo is the home of musicians: Sly and the family Stone, Mac Dre, E 40, Mac Mall, Turf Talk.

Vallejo is also the home for Six Flags Discovery Kingdom formerly known as Six Flags Marine World. Vallejo is increasing in size, and the economy is growing, more jobs are created to keep more people off the streets.

Vallejo is well known for the many churches it has, and is the backbone to gospel music in the Bay area along with Oakland, Ca. Also performing here as one of the top organists is Moses Tyson Jr. which has great technique and style.

Vallejo is a beautiful city and has a wide variety of people from all walks of life creating a well- rounded blend. It overall a fun filled place with rich history and many chances of opportunity from the rich to the poor.

Home city of the fallen Mac Dre, the great E-40, Baby Bash and Mac Mall and the Crestside Rompers and Thizzers. This is The Block, the north bay ghetto and once the state capital. From Rancho, The Crest (cuddiville), College Park, Hillcrest, Tree Town (T.T. WEST), Simmerons, The South, Beverly Hills, Sea Side to Lofas, Vallejo is crakn'. Bigger than richmond, but not quite oakland, Vallejo is the stompn' grounds for the SA's and AA's.

Also known as The Block, Vallejo is the biggest city in Solano County. Consisting of: The Crest (Cuddiville), Terrace Park, T.T. West (Tree Town), The Ville, Hillcrest, Beverly Hills, Rancho, Lofas, The South, College Park, The Hills, Simmerons (Good Crest and Sea Side, Vallejo is a influencial part of the North Bay and Greater East Bay. With a populaiton of just over 121,000 people, Vallejo has become concentrated with city blocks of clicks and hence has become to be known as The Block. Surrounded by wankster cities like Benicia, Fairfield, American Canyon, Napa and Vacaville, Vallejo has maintained its reputation, as Dave Chappell would say, of keepn' it real. On the news you usually hear about Oakland, Richmond and SF crimes and whatnot but you never hear about Vallejo. That because 'ya boys' tryna run this city and cover things from the media. But please believe, on The Block, mess goes down. Triflin drama in dis city. Authorities here is corrupt.
