"A great street by a park and businesses"

San Jose Ave. is a street located near Balboa. It is a residential street mostly. It is a pretty busy street sometimes. It is generally pretty safe though. It has many small businesses and stores on it. There is a barbershop, a Deli, a clothing boutique and a few small restaurants. There is access to a few muni lines like the 26 and J. It also runs by Balboa Park and Leadership High school. Overall this would be a nice street to live on.

"On the border between the Mission and Noe Valley"

I'm reviewing the north part of San Jose Avenue between Cesar Chavez and the entrance to 280. Although more of a residential street and a route to the 280 freeway, it's convenient to both Noe Valley and the restaurants & bars on Mission street. One standout local business is Mitchell's Ice Cream at San Jose and 29th, where you can find long lines day or night for ice cream in flavors such as baby coconut and Mexican chocolate.
