good question. Having lived here for most of my life I would say there are several benefits including:

. quiet neighborhood
. sense of community
. a nice street filled with all kinds of shops
. convenient access to all major freeways
. stable house values
. decent schools
. short commute to nearby malls, zoo, and beach
. pleasant spirit to the neighborhood

Hope that helps,

Easy muni to downtown, Stonestown Mall, City College and SF University.

Close to driving to 280 and 101 Freeways. Close to a Library, new public swimming pool, Stern

Grove, Zoo, Great Hwy/beach, Cliff House and Golden Gate Park.

Even in this economy, West Portal still is a wonderful, varied, shopping area that is safer than most.

Living here is a comfortable, quiet, layed back, coffee shops neighborhood; but also with plenty of

good and fun ethnic restaurants and theater. Parking can be a problem as with the rest of SF. And,

we do have our cool, clean air fog for a comfortable good night's sleep. .
