Civic Center Reviews

2 reviews
Positives first: It's close to everything. Great for walking, biking & public transit. There are limitations on driving but that's a good thing. You can grab Bart to Oakland in 12 minutes, or to SFO and Oakland International in 25 & there are direct buses to Marin, the wine country & trains to the Peninsula and San Jose within easy walking distance. International restaurants of every variety and price range, bars, stores, coffee, movie theaters, and major shopping districts are found in every direction. Great cultural & LGBT diversity, an amazing twice weekly farmer's market. Beautiful architecture: Beaux Arts & Neo Classical architecture. Negatives: homelessness, mental illness, poverty, needles, trash, urine, street hawkers & grittynes

HELLO,
I had an experience in civic center for two years and there are good things and bad things. the good things are the place looks nice with many things to do over there, I like to go to the main library of San francisco very big library and nexty to it the city hall nice viaw of it. also I used to go the CCSF in Civic center they have some programs to study for free fee such as english learning as a second language.
The bad thing is the homeless are a lot of them and they do not have place to live they had to stay on street . I really feel bad for them and I hope the people with city work to help them to stand up and make good life for them.

thanks
