Oakland Ave/ Harrison St Reviews

3
Living around Harrison St. or the North-Eastern Lake Meritt District often seems intimidating to many who aren't from around Oakland. In fact, moving anywhere in Oakland seems scary. But living in this neighborhood has honestly been the best place I've ever lived in my life. There is lots of access to public transit, including BART, the free Broadway bus, local buses, rental bikes, etc.... There are also tons of local boutiques, unique theaters, bookstores, and markets close by. This area has the added benefit of being the midpoint (ish) between downtown and the Grand Lake area, or the two best areas of Oakland (in my opinion at least). Even at night I rarely feel unsafe, especially walking by the lake. This area is also very close to some of Oakland's major schools, public and private, almost all of which are walkable or bikeable. I never tire of living here and quite frankly, would recommend it to nearly everybody.

The area was friendly with many neighbors stopping to say hello. Everyone was welcoming and happy to see nursing students surveying the area.
Oakland Ave/Harrison Street is a very decent area. Access to Kaiser Hospital and businesses in the area. The community is diverse too.
