This area, known as Parkside, is very calm and residential. While it is close to some buses and relatively close to MUNI's N Judah line, public transit would be difficult to depend upon for daily commuting. There is plenty of parking for those with cars. There is little crime in the area, particularly because it isn't close to many social hang-outs or areas with drug traffic. The area is populated with families and retirees, in general. There are a number of parks nearby, and it is close to the San Francisco Zoo and the ocean.
