Because of all its advantages, this part of town is not cheap, but neither is it trendy. If you are looking for a hip part of town to live in, this is not it. If you drive, coming home in Geary Blvd traffic everyday can get old fast. There are no freeways close by. And if you do not drive, although there are plenty of buses, it will take you a while to get to downtown. If you like lots of trees this is not the part of town for you.
