Highland Terrace Reviews

1
Unpleasant. Has a 3rd world feel- dogs often running free in the street (literally in the street), obnoxious, inconsiderate residents, vehicles without mufflers and loud stereos cruising (or more often speeding) down very narrow streets, and fireworks going off more nights than not. Didn't even know there were still places like this in the Bay Area. There are some decent spots, but mostly it's crap. If you like loud, dirty and piles of trash on the sidewalk, you'll love this area. Oh, and no grocery store or any other commercial area unless you consider the gas station convenience store a grocery store. But you can't go in there later at night because the owners lock the door and only interact through a slot in the plate glass (probably bullet resistant) window. And if you need the police, forget it. This area seems to get about the same priority as far east Oakland.
