"Residential Connector Street"

There is nothing particularly mind-blowing about Monterey Boulevard, one way or another. It is simply a residential street that runs through Glen Park due west, almost to Highway 1. The Glen Park/280 side has some delis and a few Asian takeout places, but nothing to write home about. As you head west, the neighborhood gets more residential and more suburban, the houses get bigger, and the cars in the driveways get nicer. I wouldn't call this neighborhood a San Francisco mecca by any stretch, but there are some nice places (although they are pretty far off the map).

Traffic is not too bad, considering how close it is to 280, and the road is governed by stop signs rather than lights, which makes for an interesting driving dynamic. And the Safeway has rooftop parking, which is something I've never seen before. It's not the most exciting place I've seen but it certainly could be worse.
Pros
  • Decent traffic
  • Nice homes
  • Okay shopping nearby
Cons
  • Removed from SF
  • Foggy weather
  • Pretty nondescript

"A pleasant street in Sunnyside."

Monterey Blvd is a street that runs from Glen Park, through Sunnyside and ends up in St francis. It is residential mostly. This street is mainly used for transportation. But there are a few businesses that are popular in the neighborhood. There is Monterey Pizza and Joes Burger, both which are very good. There is access to muni buses like the 23, which runs along this street. It is close to St Finn Barr Catholic private school and Sunnyside school. Also there is Sunnyside park nearby. Overall it is a very safe street and would be an ideal place to reside.

"A great place to live!"

Monterey Blvd is a really long street. It leads from Santa Clara Ave. to the Glen Park Bart Station. This is a great place to live because there are modest houses that are mostly two stories, nice apartments, and extravagant mansion-like houses with lawns. Monterey has greenery, not only for those with those mansion-like houses, but also for those living in modest houses. Trees line the sidewalks of this street. There are places to dine too, Monterey Blvd has restaurants and cafes. There is also a Safeway on this street for buying groceries. For entertainment, there is the San Francisco zoo a few blocks away and yoga studios. There are ways of transportation too, the 23 is a bus that goes along Monterey all the way to get one from one side of this street to another. I think this is a great place to raise a family.

"Pretty street with great views provide great living!"

Monterey Boulevard is a very long street starting off of Santa Clara Avenue in the St. Francis Woods district and runs all the way to the Glen Park district. Monterey serves as a connecting street from the Sunset/St. Francis district to Highway 280 and the Glen Park BART Station. In addition to connecting these districts, there are plenty of housing, stores, and restaurants on Monterey.

The housing on Monterey is large and beautiful with great views of the city. Set higher than most of the city, the view from Monterey Boulevard is terrific. The housing deserves admiration as they are generally larger than the nearby Sunset district but not nearly as big as the homes in St. Francis Woods.

In addition to the terrific views and great housing, Monterey has great eateries and stores running along the eastern side. There is a large grocery store, a pizza shack, a few Chinese restaurants, and a few offices. Public transportation along Monterey is ample and the traffic isn’t too bad to complain about noise.
