This neighboorhood is safe and friendly. I know many people on my street,Delano and the adjoining streets too. It's a diverse community with City College,Swimming pool,Balboa park and playground on our doorstep. Bart, Muni and the freeways are right there too. We are also close to outer mission st, with all the usual suspects-walgreens, goodwill, safeway. Glen Park and Noe Valley are close enough to pop out for fine dining or fine shopping!
It is relatively safe. There is a cop station behind the park but we are a diverse community, so there has been some crime activity. Yet, I feel very safe here-I think most of the crime is not against the general population.
Good luck! Just read another review and YES THEIR IS BART NOISE!!!!So,if you buy out here, if you can 2,3 blocks form freeway and you will need new windows!
It has great public transportation a nearby swimming pool and shopping along Mission. I believe that all it needs is more owners like Al and possibly you Deed to move in form a neighborhood association and get involved in making event nicer. This is a very good way to increase you quality of life and property values. SF SAFE can help you get organized when ever you are ready.
