"Tiny dead-end side street"

If suburbs had alleyways, Kirkwood court would be it - this street is nothing like the mountain. In any regular town, it would be a standard cul-de-sac street, but in East Palo Alto this type of road has more of a dead-end feel. The houses are okay by the standards in this town, and being on a side street yields less traffic than other roads see, but less traffic also means less police activity in a place like this.

The positive thing about Kirkwood Court is that it is right on the border of Menlo Park, which means it has some of the normalcies of other towns, like the fact that it is within walking distance of Starbucks and a gas station (this is a big deal for EPA). If you do choose to buy in this town, this could potentially be one of the better streets to buy, although I wouldn't make this your primary residence if you have kids.
  • Cheaper
  • Decent investment
  • Quieter than some EPA streets
  • Kind of removed from the public eye
  • Questionable safety
  • Some run-down homes
