If you haven't reached a point where you want to take the time to actually spend time in the neighborhood then visit the local school websites. See what clubs, what activities, and what classes the schools offer. Search for what after school sports teams are in the area.

Whenever we use words like "family oriented" or "small children", as agents, we cannot comment on these qualities for fear of violating housing discrimination laws, so we'd never post comments on this matter publicly and certainly not on a website.
What we can say, however, is that Cataldi is one of the robust neighborhoods in the area, and you can certainly see both fabulous homes and good opportunites in this area. As to the overall lifestyle within the community, the best way to find out what it would be like to live in the community is simply to ask the neighbors. Knock on a couple doors near the home where you'd like to live and ask the neighbors what it's like to live there, how many children and or families live down the street, and get their impressions on the community first-hand.
In addition to asking the neighbors about the lifestyle in the area, you can also check the following for ratings for the local schools and crime in the area at:

Therefore, what I could suggest you to do is to speak to your agent or drive or take a walk to the area you want to buy home at least couple different time so you have some idea how the neighbors are.
In case you have not had any agent working for you, I would be delighted to be your agent. I suggest you to visit my website to get read more information of my profile at http://www.4reohomes.us.

Grace Morioka gave you an excellent recommendation and that is to go out and knock on some of the doors in the neighborhood and talk to some of the neighbors. That will give you an excellent idea of what the neighborhood is like.
I have represented a number of clients over the years in the purchase of their homes in the north San Jose area.
My experience with north San Jose is that my clients have been pleased with the homes and the neighborhood that they purchased in North San Jose.
The best way to tell if this is the neighborhood for you is to go out and knock on some doors and talk to the neighbors.
