Where I live is called the Outer Richmond. It is a nice area to live. More suburban compared to the rest of San Francisco, but it has nice qualities. The location is nice being next to Golden Gate Park, but Fulton street can be dangerous. Since it is the street that divides the Park from the neighborhood, you will find that there are many homeless people, and a lot of cars being broken into, which makes everyone stray away from parking on the main street (Fulton). Other than that, there are bus routes near by, as well as restaurants, farmers markets, schools and a library all in a nearby radius. I would live here again because I like how close everything is, including the park and the beach.

This city has had its ups and downs, it’s a struggling city but it’s growing. The mixed community is what has made this place great in culture and living.
Beautiful views, clean, quiet area with short walk access to beaches and hiking trails. Residents are older except for the school aged kids getting to and from school. Low crime and great schools.
