This is a great mix of the suburban with the urban. You are faraway enough from down town not to have to feel like you live in a big city when you don't want to, yet close enough to enjoy city life when you are in the mood for it. Most of the houses are duplexes or single family homes, most people have their own garage and a small garden. At the same time you will be close enough to Geary Boulevard to walk to your neighborhood bar or stroll to dinner. Living so close to Geary is a great advantage because there is every kind of business imaginable. You can get your photo framed, buy a new mattress or have the best Korean barbecue all in one block. Parker Avenue itself is clean, quiet and well maintained. There are attractive lawns and well cared for vehicles everywhere. You will likely run into families and people over 40 on the street here.
