For 18 years I have live in this neighborhood and I have loved it the whole way through. Every who lives here are all super nice and kind people and look out for each other. I went to middle school in this area and made some of my best friends there. Not only are the people and community area, but the location is great. I am only a short walk to the Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach which is especially good if you have any dogs or kids. Plenty of places to go to hike.

Very calm neighborhood, very cheap rent, very good viewz. Having a lot of space here is a plus-- backyards, big garage, etc. However, night life is lacking and one rarely sees other people walking on the streets at night.
So cute! Close knit community, very quiet and safe. And so close to the beach! What more could you ask for.
