Abstract : Today, the Mission neighborhood in San Francisco is identified as the Hispanic neighborhood of the city – the « barrio». It was not always the case : after World War II, it was still predominantly inhabited by white working class residents who immigrated from Europe a few decades ago. From the 1950s on, and increasingly in the 1960s and 1970s, the Mexican and Central American immigration deeply changed the neighborhood and its shopping street. However, at the turn of the century, the Mission residents are much more diverse than it is commonly believed. Analyzing the role of church, school and local organizations also shows that social ties in the neighborhood are weak. It shatters the myth of a strong coherent immigrant community.
