"Industrial Road"

Obrien Drive is an interesting little street, given that it is filled with business complexes characteristic of Silicon Valley, and is the bridge over to the working-class East Palo Alto. One side is run-down homes, the other side is filled with 21st-century buildings on the cutting edge of technology. Obrien is simply a bridge to it all - for better or for worse. The street is relatively mellow and sees little traffic even

Cell phone coverage can be a bit spotty in this area, considering how populated it is, and food selection is limited to the Starbucks, Jack-in-the-Box and Togo's on nearby Willow Road.

Overall, there's nothing about this street that stands out much; I've been driving through for months and have never thought to review it until now.
  • Food nearby
  • Low traffic
  • Lots of businesses
  • Nothing to do
  • Weird crossroads of neighborhoods
  • Questionable safety at night
