I have been living at McAllister and Van Ness for three years. 1st drawback - No parking. There is ample public transportation but I prefer my own car and had to give it up.
2ND Lots of homeless. You have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by seeing human beings sleeping exposed to the weather.
3rd It is BUSY year round. If there is any event chances are they begin or end at the Civic Center.
4TH No grocery shopping within walking distance.... more
