"Not the safest place"

Clara is not the safest place in San Francisco, primarily because it poses as a cut through between 6th to 4th streets. It's mostly residential with apartments and condo buildings. It's fairly lit about half way down the street, but then it gets dark near 5th. It's a little brighter toward 6th street but that's because of all of the street lights and businesses on 6th. Yet, 6th is known for heavy crime.
It's also not very clean and looks a little dingy. The people are relatively quiet and keep to themselves or associate with people in their building.

"Mostly large houses or apartments"

Clara Street is an average street located between Shipley Street and Harrisson Street. It intersects 6th and 4th st. There are many apartments located on this street, but they are pretty much scattered on the street. The apartments are really plain looking though, nothing really stands out because the arrangement of the buildings aren't that great, they are arranged in a way that does not compliment the street or the other buildings. There are also houses scattered around this street, these houses are average and decent. The Salvation Army is located on this street, which is great because people can donate any clothes, toys, etc that they don't need to those less fortunate. Overall, this street is alright.
