"40th Ave....Fairly quiet during day....Gunshots at night."

40th Ave in Oakland is just pure housing. There are no shops or stores on this Avenue.
You will get shops as you walk/drive towards the intersections of E12th Street/Foothill/International Blvd. But for all basic purposes, this street is housing.

Southern most portion of 40th Ave is probably the loudest. It crosses the train tracks and the BART station.

There are two elementary schools near 40th Ave. The southern most is connected at E12th Street closer to 38th/39th Ave. The northern most is connected on 40th near Mera St. Are these schools great? I'd probably say no.

Population on 40th Ave is mostly latino and black. More towards the hispanic ethnicity.

There is a fair amount of motorcycle traffic on Foothill Blvd and 40th. There is a Hells Angel's Motorcycle club there. Also a mexican bakery on that corner.

Heading north on 40th Ave, past Foothill Blvd is a hilling section road. So, it begins to get steep there. Your car better have good brakes as you drive up this slanted section.

40th Avenue seems to be a fairly standard neighborhood, but during the night, I'd probably say it gets dangerous. Houses and side walls tend to have graffiti, but they get painted over quickly.
You can hear gun shots every few nights. And if you drive out late at night, there certainly is some questionable activity on the street corners.
