Recently moved here and love the neighborhood. It's a pretty low-key neighborhood with everything still accessible. A wholefoods recently opened up, which is a big plus and there is easy access to the high way for those who commute.

Great views of the city. This is your place if you enjoy resting in a low key neighborhood of San Francisco, but having easy access to get to the city or highways to get out of town.
My neighborhood is more housing than retail, so it is difficult to find everything you need. There are good restaurants, and a couple nice bars but it is fairly limited.There are more big companies in my area than mom and pop shops which is disappointing.
