Parkside is a great neighborhood to live in especially if you are a student or raising a family. It is a generally quiet neighborhood with good parking (big plus in SF). Its easily accessible to SFSU, Stonestown, and Daly City so you pretty much don't need to leave the area often. One thing that can improve is the variety of restaurants in the area.

The general atmosphere of San Francisco has changed greatly from a city of artists, grant thinkers and political motivators to mid stream mediocre consumerist melting pot all striving to buy into a chunk of the real estate market. The city residents speak in Your choice of dozens of languages but English does not seem to be one of them. They claim to be residents but do not read or write or speak English, litter the streets with garbage and do not follow basic social rules like obeying noise levels and motor vehicle laws.

It seems that this trend will only continue and increase to make this urban area less appealing. Although I am a descendant of emigres on both sides of my lineage, I know that my predecessors either spoke or learned to speak English when they came to America and respected the laws of this country. When I graduate from college, my goal is not to live in San Francisco.
Sense of community has diminished, after SF Park and rec closed many dog friendly parks to off leash dog walkig, Sigmund Stern Grove remained one of the last that allowed off leash dog walking. The park became inundated with dogs from all over the city and has made parking in our area impacted and dog noise level higher. Very few families remain o our street that I have known since childhood. most have moved away to a better school district.
