Great boba all around and nice people. The library in the portola is great! Also, very accesible to the 54 and 9 bus route. Great food places and very safe.

I lived in this area for most of my life attending two schools: elementary and middle school. The only great thing about this place is probably the variety of food. Not the safest neighborhood but I had a lot of good memories with friends in this area. I barely pass through this area since my school is across the city. I wouldn't hang around at night, but there are a lot of Muni buses that passes by. Unfortunately not even the Muni drivers makes me feel any safer.
San Francisco has been a wonderful place to live, but walks the line in affordability. Born and raised in Missouri (Saint Louis area), California gas prices have thwarted me from driving my car as often as I have been accustomed to. However, the public transportation system in California and, more specifically, San Francisco area is immaculate. Overall I would say it's a great place to live.
