"One of the better Streets in Oakland"

I haven't spent too much time here, but 20th street is home to Great Western Power Company, Oakland's only rock climbing gym. Because gyms are generally built in old industrial warehouse buildings, they are generally found in up-and-coming neighborhoods, and 20th street is no exception. It is near both Broadway and Telegraph, which gives the whole area the feel of a nice business district during the day.

At night, the area feels more like a deserted business district, a la downtown Denver or Phoenix. It is Oakland, after all - but there are some cool-looking bars to make the deserted area feel a little more populated. The mix of natives and East Bay hipsters give the area a unique feeling. I wouldn't want to walk around there alone at night, but I am also not partial to eerily quiet areas in cities.
Pros
  • Cleaner Oakland street
  • Reasonable prices
  • Some good places to eat
Cons
  • A little sketchy at night
  • Dangerous nearby
