Trash collectors often do not pick up items left on the sidewalk so they may linger on the street for days on end.

I lived in an apartment on California and Pierce and another apartment on California and Baker.

In the first apartment, there really wasn't a gym nearby. A few studios, but no gym. Also, the closest grocery store was Mollie Stone ($$$). The California 1x or 1bx runs often and are very fast.

I felt safe around Fillmore, but it gets a bit shadier going towards Geary. The demographic is affluent professionals, mostly mid-20's to 40's.

In my second apartment, I had a hard time catching cabs. I would go to the Jewish Community Center to gym and Trader Joes to grocery shop. I still felt safe, but would be cautious.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any additional questions!
