Different kinds of restaurants. A park nearby with unique artwork.The Dark Horse Inn shows classic movies along with the food

It is quiet . It is close to grocery stores and restaurants and good for families. It is close to the park and neighborhood playground

I grew up here so it's home. Everything is near by like schools, transportation, and coffee. There is liveliness a couple of blocks down for some fun.

The friendly neighbors green grass and trees...It is great to live hereIt is great for San francisco...

I really enjoy going to the bar down the street and getting really drunk. There's also a taqueria next to the bar, so I can enjoy my favorite burritos and chimichangas baby. Salsa verde, telemundo, por favor.

My neighborhood is nearby many public transit lines and parks. It's also near a library and grocery store.
