Yes, well this is what comes of trying to type without having had coffee. What the hell was I thinking? I wasn't!


Any specific neighborhoods in mind? The wife and I used to live in Inner Sunset (8th Ave and Irving), and we loved it: easy access to GG park; one block from the N-Judah line; sunny in the daytime. (Horribly foggy from ~4pm on, though.)

Good luck! I'm excited for you. SF is a wonderful city, as I'm sure you already know.


Looking at studios in the Lower Pacific Heights/Western Addition section. I like the idea of walking a (hilly) 1.9 miles to work. :) Except on the rainiest of days. that's just the preliminary search though, so I'm also checking out places in Emeryville and Oakland. Will be sure to post pics and the whole big adventure!


Glad you made it!

Watch were you go in Oakland. It's been devolving into a drug-infested murder den in the last three years.

Stick to areas around Lake Merritt and away from Fruitvale (far away). Some parts of Emeryville are cute, too.

But if I were you, I'd try to live in S.F. for a while. More to do, more fun to be had. From what I hear, the rents are comparable to the East Bay these days.

Check out the Richmond District (NOT Richmond in East Bay), Inner Sunset (although it can be a little hard to get to and cold), and Potrero Hill. All are relatively affordable and good, safe neighborhoods. Also the Castro is good if you go a little ways south of Castro street.
