"The best emementary school is on this street!"
63rd street is home to a great and unique Oakland Public school. Peralta Elementary was a year round school when I attended (a long, long time ago). The neighborhood is very family oriented, as the school works with the community. Well kept home with a lot of great Oakland history. Close to the 40 bus line (runs to Berkeley and East Oakland), definitely waking distance to UC Berkeley, BART, the Ashby Flea market, College Ave, Whole Foods and Alta Bates hospital.
