Reinforcing what others have said-
Diverse (many languages spoken)
Mostly smaller older charming (20'/30's) homes on small lots
Urban (dense, lively, packed with people and businesses)
Mostly middle to lower income
Crime (check the maps as suggested)
Easy transportation (near BART station, buses, 2 major freeways)
Close to Alameda
Short drive to Downtown Oakland & Jack London Square
