"Not too exciting to visit"

San Bruno Avenue is located in the Ingleside district and is close to the Baywiew/ Hunters Point area. It is not in the best area, so I would not get my hopes up about this street. There are many businesses along the strip of this street such as nail shops, hair salons, chinese food, mexican food, fast food, gas stations, grocery stores, banks, and even a library. All of these places are relatively cheap and not too fancy. There are two high schools located along cross streets at both ends of San Bruno Avenue. One is Phillip and Sala Burton and the other is Thurgood Marshall. There is a lot of foot traffic in the morning and afternoon as students arrive and depart from school. I wouldn't really recommend this street for living. There is no night life either along this street because it can be dangerous, so I wouldn't recommend it for singles at all.

citygalsf San Bruno Ave. is *not* in the Ingleside District. It's in the Portola, and the neighborhood is fine. There are basic services (groceries, Walgreens, Radio Shack, restaurants, banks, etc.) along San Bruno Ave. The library is no longer located on San Bruno (brand new library is on Goettingen at Bacon). It's not a fancy neighborhood, but it's fine. Certainly safe along San Bruno Ave. during the day and early evening. No nightlife, but it's not because it's dangerous; this is just a very quiet suburban-like neighborhood.

"San Bruno Avenue: An Okay Place"

San Bruno Avenue is an extremely long street that leads from Bayshore Blvd. to Rickard St. San Bruno is sort of split into two regions. There is a shopping region where all of the stores are located, and a second region where there are houses. The shopping region has large buildings that also serve as apartments for people, there are grocery stores, Walgreens, flower stores, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, clothing shops, etc. The region with the houses is generally nice. There are some of the houses that can be in better condition, but most of them are decent and clean. There are also several bus stops along this long street so transportation is not a problem. There are schools near this street too, and other facilities such as the library. There are occasional acts of violence around the area and graffiti and vandalism on a few places nearby and on the street, but nothing really happens to the residents of this street. Overall, this is an okay place
