"A busy street that can be dangerous after hours."

Geneva Ave is a street located in the Crocker Amazon District mostly. It runs from Bayshore all the way to Ocean. In some parts it is residential and in other it has businesses. Nearby is the Crocker amazon park which has many baseball fields, a skate park and a playground. On mission and Geneva it is very busy almost all the time. There is a popeyes, billards, a pizza joint, and many other things. It can get dangerous on this street after hours and I would not recommend traveling alone in the dark. There is access to many buses like the 29, 9 and the K muni line at Ocean. It would be an ok place to reside.

"Busy Geneva Ave"

Geneva Ave
Geneva Ave is a long street that stretches for almost 3 miles from Mission to beyond San Bruno Ave. The main bus lines that run near and on Geneva are the 9x, 43 and 29. Geneva is near schools and public transportations and the picturesque McLaren Park. It is filled with local tiny shops, supermarkets and restaurants (mostly Asian and Hispanic). Most of the street is also residential-filled with affordable housing and apartments. These houses and apartments are fairly old, but none go back to the early 1900s. Although some parts of Geneva are quiet, most of southern Geneva is infamous for gang and violent activities, especially during the morning and night times. The area where Geneva intersects with Ocean is busy since it is a center of public transportation. The main attraction of Geneva is cheap housing! Geneva is a not so highly recommended area for raising children.

"Busy Street but Easy Transportation"

Good location for business, easy transportation, lots of groceries, close to Bart Station, City College. This is the location that you can open your store, you can walk your kids to the park or take the bus to downtown San Francisco. You don't really need a car if you lived in this area, parking is not so difficult to find, but make sure you stop at the stop sign.
