East San Jose (or East Valley or The Eastside) is the eastern region of San Jose, California in Silicon Valley, comprising several neighborhoods and including a former city of that name. The area is bounded roughly by Berryessa Rd to the north, the Diablo Range toward the east, Highway 101 and portions of Yerba Buena Rd and Silver Creek Valley Rd towards the south, and Highway 101 to the west.

East San Jose was also the name of a small former city that sat to the east of San Jose, which was annexed by the City of San Jose in 1911.[2] The 1910 US Census recorded a population of 1,661.[citation needed]

Before World War II, East San Jose was a small section of San Jose located on the east banks of the Guadalupe River and west of today's U.S. Route 101.[citation needed] After World War II, the area saw rapid development, along with much of the Santa Clara Valley.
