Our neighborhood is friendly, racially diverse, urban, and transitional. While we've never had a break-in, use common sense and don't leave valuables in your car. There are restaurants close by, but this is not a shopping district. The closest mall area is 1.6 miles away at Baystreet in Emeryville.
Many of the homes were built either before the 1906 earthquake or after (like Sunny Side Up), so take a walk down 63rd St. and notice some of the original details (especially the block going towards San Pablo Ave).
Our local cafe Paradise Park Café is about 3 blocks from our house and serves delicious food and drink. Nearby is the infamous James & the Giant Cupcake (serving cupcakes). The Golden Gate Recreation Center is 2 blocks away and sports a new playground for kids.
Within a mile, you'll find local cuisine (Vegan Donut Farm and Tribu Cafe), Thai (Summer Summer), Asian fusion (Noodle Theory Provisions), Indian-inspired pizza (Namaste Pizza), Mexican (Chile Jalapeno), homestyle cuisine (Homegrown), Sushi (Kyo2), Ethiopian (Lemat), and the infamous McDonald's.
For adults, SF is an easy 15 -20 minute drive (with no traffic).
UC Berkeley is about a 10 minute car ride away as is Berkeley Rep/downtown Berkeley/downtown Oakland. For hiking, Tilden Park is a fifteen minute drive, and the Berkeley and Emeryville Marinas are close by.
Berkeley Bowl and Trader Joe's -- our local grocery stores -- are about 1.1 and 1.5 miles away (respectively and in different directions).
Ashby BART is one mile from our house.
The number 72/72R buses are located approximately three blocks away on San Pablo @ Alcatraz.
The Emery-Go-Round is a free shuttle service that can take you to different locations around Emeryville as well as to MacArthur BART station. The closest stop is .6 miles away at 63rd/Hollis.
Emeryville Amtrak is exactly 1 mile away:
Some people like to use Uber and Lyft to catch a ride to public transportation while others prefer to walk.
