Current Resident: Growning up in san francisco's bayview district, allowed me to grow up ith the best weather in the city. The people of the bayview are nice caring people who like to always have fun, especially when the bayview opera house throws community events on the third Friday of every month. There are alot of good schools as well as extra curricular activities for youth, adults and the elderly. The bayview is a great place, its currently going through mass improvements and influxes of many different people. It a beautiful thing.

Current Resident: I have lived in the area for around 4 years now. Love how the schools are in close proximity to home; no more than a 5 minute drive. The movies, mall, and places to eat are also extremely close and the neighborhood are very family orientated. I would say the one down side to living out here is the commute, especially if you are going into downtown area. On a good day with good traffic, the drive is around 35-40 minutes. However, if you are leaving during traffic hour, expect to be sitting in your car for at least an hour.

- Suburb of Los Angeles, CA
Nearby Resident: Love the structure of the neighborhoods and the intimate community aspect integrated by the playgrounds, pools, and sport courts placed in the middle of a couple of their communities. Close proximity to the hiking/biking trails in the Loma Linda Hills. Only 1-2 hours to the beach, mountains, Joshua Tree, or Los Angeles itself! Predominantly Christian city, with the hospital having been started by an Adventist Christian pioneer, and many Christian churches in the area. Nice people!

Current Resident: I've lived in Pittsburg my whole life so far and i love it. I'm 17 years old , Pittsburg is a beautiful city and there's people all over the place. We have multiple parks in separated areas. We have multiple middle schools and elementary schools. Unfortunately, there is only one Highschool so it gets extremely crowded and irritating (Say goodbye to your personal space). The people here are extremely friendly. At night i wouldn't let your children out by themselves because in certain areas it's kind of sketchy . Our city is extremely diverse. We have every shade and size . We also recently just added a gym called Planet Fitness it's really great. I would consider living here!

Current Resident: I was born and raised in Pinole. Pinole is a very quiet family oriented neighborhood. Pinole's diversity has changed over the years due to housing crisis and development changes. I attended private christian schools in the area Kindergarten through junior high that provided decent education. One school is still open which is El Sorbrante Christian School. Safety is a priority in Pinole since it is a small town. The cost of living has increased over the years as well most residents who have lived in Pinole have moved further out or out of state. Pinole for a young adult looking for night life may have to commute to major cities such as Oakland, San Francisco, and Concord. Overall if one wants to raise a family this a decent city to start.

Niche User: There's everything you need within a short distance. One thing I would want to change if possible is reducing the density of the population, though I am completely aware that that is not plausible.

- Suburb in New Jersey
Current Resident: The town of Englewood, New Jersey is a great community. The current location that I reside in is surrounding with schools that are within walking distance, stores for shopping, car dealerships, salons, parks, churches and so on. Everything is convenient. One can walk any hours in the night time and feel safe. The community is composed of different ethnic groups such as African Americans, Hispanic, Whites, and also people who came from the Caribbean’s. One would like to live here and be apart of this amazing community. The only issue one might face is the cost of living. Other than that, if one was to do the math with everything close by instead of driving a distance, it would add up to the same as if you were living far away from everything and would have to drive. Would calculate the cost of gas, insurance and maintenance for a car. As for me, everything is within walking distance and buses are available for my commute lifestyle.

Current Resident: Recently moved to Gardena from Culver City initially wasn’t sure about the move, but wow what a great decision. Got in early enough to buy a home (for a fraction of the cost vs Culver) and this town is absolutely gentrifying with local breweries popping up and so much great food. The Aerospace industry is taking over SW Gardena. Great place to live!

- City in California
Current Resident: Hayward is a welcoming city. It is home to my university, California State University - East Bay (CSUEB). It serves a diverse community that cares about the environment and works to keep the city green. The Keep Hayward Clean and Green organization lends a helping hand by voluntarily picking up trash and waste around the city. CSUEB students also take a part volunteering for that effort as well every October for Make a Difference Day. The city has potential to thrive given the downtown area is undergoing a transformation by bringing new and fantastic things, such as a new library and an enhanced shopping center. Currently, there are many housing properties in development. However, given the city rests directly on a fault line, it is extremely earthquake prone and there is a need to remodel and retrofit older housing complexes, as evident in appearance. Other than this, the city is beautiful!

Current Resident: I have been a resident in American Canyon since 2003 and have grown to love this town. My children attend the elementary school and middle school. They are getting a great education with resource support as needed. There are good family restaurants located close. Traffic through town can be slow as the highway is the main road to get to Northern Napa County. I feel safe in this family community. We have beautiful parks and trials to maintain a healthy living. Love this town!

Current Resident: I've been living in Stafford since I was 2 years old, and I absolutely love it! I was apart of the Stafford Municipal School District from Kindergarten all the way thru 12th grade. We are our own district so there are no property taxes and we've had the same mayor since the 70s (so he's obviously a favorite). Stafford is large but quiet. I'd recommend anyone to move there.

Current Resident: I have lived in Germantown the past 11 years of my life. I have grown up here and gone to RCMS and SVHS before I got into college. I love Germantown. My favorite thing about Germantown is the diversity, there are so many people from different backgrounds who live here. I get to talk to my neighbors who have moved here from another country and I have the opportunity to ask them about their culture, I find it fascinating. I honestly could not see myself living anywhere else!

Niche User: San Diego has great landmarks such as the beaches, Presidio park, Balboa park, and just the general weather is a great addition. Some areas can be dangerous but its best to stay inside at night unless you're going out for a night in downtown. San Diego has a general high cost for living here.

- City in New York
Current Resident: The best comparison anyone has ever made of Brooklyn is that of an ocean. If you have just moved here you have a lot of exploring to do. The train can help with that. You can go anywhere at any time. There is always something to do. Nothing ever stops here. Life just keeps moving fast; it's a rush. Some people can begin their day at night and others in the morning. There are varieties of everything you can possibly think of. The rent can be high but living here even for a year could maybe change your life. You can complain about your problems over a slice of pizza. Anyways, you know you love living here. The nightlife is so alive! And when you get tired of Brooklyn (can't imagine why) you have four other boroughs to explore. That is after you've been to all the different neighborhoods.
