"pretty quiet busy street"

i lived on north 10th for a short time and also worked on north 10th while living on south 10th.

Just like any other street that is kind of low in number in san jose, its downtown. There is access to busses, not so much light rail as far as proximity. But there is also an abundance of churches and small shops. There used to be a hospital downtown that was close to 10th street, but it was unfortunately closed down.

I walked up and down this street...typically from S. 10th to Jackson everyday to work at the elementary school at Jackson and 10th. There is a very residential street. There arent a lot of stores or mini marts. There is a funeral home where cops like to hang out at night.

Just like any other part of 10th street it is a multi lane one way street so not the best option for families unless they have a fence. Cars go fast and they are not necessarily paying attention.

Another thing is that it is divided north and south by Santa Clara Street and on Santa Clara street there are a lot of homeless wandering around. That could be a turn off for a lot of people. I personally never had a problem with the homeless on Santa Clara street, but could see how that would bother people. There is a section just south of Santa Clara Street on 10th where there is apparently a string of halfway houses. I did not like walking down that part of the street and would often avoid it. However, once you got more north, that pretty much disappeared.

Unlike South 10th which runs along san jose state university, there isnt the student element on North 10th which is nice.
