"Perfectly Servicable Major Thoroughfare"

Lincoln is one of the major streets in Alameda. It runs most of the length of the island and varies a ton. I live on Minturn at Lincoln right in the middle of the island.

My area is very chill. It's in the middle of the island and most people aren't willing to drive 25 miles per hour to get there. We're adding more businesses (like a cheap Chinese place) but parking is still lame (do we really need street sweeping twice a week, once for each side of the street, in the middle of Alameda?).

I love Lincoln because it's so easy to get someone who doesn't live here on or off the island on it. "Here, go that way until Lincoln becomes Tilden and suddenly you're on a bridge. Congratulations, you just made it off Alameda"

"Great street with amazing and timeless houses!"

I love Lincoln Avenue. It is pretty hard to miss Lincoln Avenue if you live in Alameda because the street is pretty big. The best thing about Lincoln Avenue is the houses. I love architecture and the houses on Alameda have a timeless appeal. Many of the houses resemble the Victorian era. They are big and spacious with lots of character. I live in one of these houses with five other girls! Certainly cannot afford one of these houses on my own. The superb decor continues with the little cafe's and the big modern department stores. This street is also home to most of the schools in Alameda, so there are plenty of students that frequent the area. Traffic is clustering at times and can easily be avoided by riding a bike. This is a great area to ride your bike in. The street has a very local and inviting feel.
