Here in Indonesia it is very common for neighbors to build sign over
the main entrance to their neighborhood, with the name of the
neighborhood on top and some other info on the two columns supporting
the sign.

In this example there are two different gateway signs, on the small
street to the left and the main street to the right:

In Portland and San Diego, there are several examples of archways or
gateway signs over the main commercial street in a retail district.
For example, Chinatown in Portland has a nice gateway sign near the
center of the neighborhood, since 1986:

And Hillcrest, San Diego has this historic sign right in the center of
the retail district:

These can't be "city limit" / "town limit" signs, because they are
just for a neighborhood and they are near the center rather than at
the border.
