Though the closing of Norton Air Force Base and Kaiser Steel, as well as the relocation of railroad jobs in the 1980s and 1990s had a large impact on the economy and culture of the city, new industrial development is occurring near the San Bernardino International Airport.

Though much of the housing stock is, on the average, older than the surrounding region, new homes continue to be built in different parts of the City, with the bulk on the north-end in the Verdemont area.

A large part of the city is over the Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin, including downtown. This accounts for historically high groundwater in portions of the city, including the former Urbita Springs, a lake which no longer exists (it is now the site of the Inland Center mall), but which was a popular entertainment area until the 1930s. Seccombe Lake, named after a former mayor, is a man-made lake downtown at Sierra Way and Waterman Avenue.

Nicknames, pronunciation, and abbreviations

San Bernardino has gone by many nicknames in its history. Of these, San B, DINO, San Berdoo[30][31] or Berdoo[32][33] is the most common but is sometimes considered to be derogatory. Others include Gate City[34] (to reflect its proximity to Los Angeles, and the fact that it is at the southern/western end of the Cajon Pass, leading to the High Desert and Las Vegas, Nevada), "The Friendly City"[35]City on the Move[36] (used in the 1970s; parodied as "The City on the Mooch" by some), and most recently The Heartbeat of Route 66[37]. Latinos played on "Berdoo" by calling the city "Verdugo.[[38]]"[39] The term means "executioner" in Spanish[40], and is also a place name in Los Angeles County, both unrelated to the use. Outsiders often misspell the city as "San Bernadino"[41], without the second "r", based on a common pronunciation of the name. A nickname of more recent vintage is "BurgerTown."[42] Newspapers, particularly the San Bernardino Sun, will abbreviate San Bernardino (the city but not the county) to "SB." This can cause some confusion in that other places in the state, including the South Bay of Los Angeles County, and Santa Barbara, California are both abbreviated to "SB." The name "San Bernardino" refers both to the incorporated "City of San Bernardino" and other associated, unincorporated parts of the City. Two common abbreviations are "San Bdno" and "San Bdo", in the 60s and 70s local mail was often addressed to "San Bdno, CA"; a Google search today for either abbreviation returns over 700 hits.
