"Nice Place to Rent in the Middle of the Island"

Minturn is a tiny, four and a half block stretch of residential neighborhood in Alameda. The street ends in a cul de sac, which is where I've lived since summer 2008.

My section of Minturn (from Lincoln Avenue until it dead ends) is mostly old Victorian houses that have been converted into n-plexes of various types. I live in a duplex with a roommate, and we have two neighbors who live downstairs.

Converting all these homes to rentals means that parking is an absolute nightmare. It's only allowed on one side of the street as is, and only ten or eleven cars fit all together. If you don't have a driveway, you're more or less hosted because Lincoln Avenue has street sweeping on Tuesday and Friday mornings early enough that leaving for work isn't going to give you enough time to move your car.

There are some cute little restaurants and shops popping up on Lincoln, a park within walking distance, and the bus stop is only a few blocks away. Traffic is sometimes noisy at night, but I've really enjoyed living on Minturn Street.
