"North Side of Campus"

Except for the fact that this street borders the north side of campus it a pretty average sort of a Berkeley street. The best spot on it is where it meets Euclid, less because of it than becuase of Euclid and the Campus at that spot.

I had a friend that lived right off of Hearst on Milvia. Hearst is okay but mostly you have to get off of it to find anything interesting. The Victorians on Hearst are particularly attractive and there is nothing very memorable about it. In addition, I once parked on Hearst a little ways down from my friend's house and I got my radio robbed. So I'm predisposed to see it as somewhat unsafe.

I would not feel safe walking here by myself at night. I would definately prefer the activity one block over on University.
