"I Would Never be Here Alone at Night"

I have been here quiet a few times because I have a couple of friends that live here, but I would never really want to live here though. The street is dirty, and once I even saw a dead rat lying on the curb! Yuck! It's also not a safe place to be alone, especially at night. My friend a boy, who live there was mugged two times before by a bunch of kids younger than him while walking home at night! The first time I was there, the whole time I was clinging onto my friend thinking "when can I go home.." I wouldn't recommend anyone to live there unless they were desperate and in need of money desperately.

"A street that has access to many stores and parks"

Silver ave is a street that runs from San Bruno Ave. to Alemany Blvd. It is mostly a residential area but runs through the busy streets of San Bruno Ave. and Mission St. It is near Palega Park, which has two baseball diamonds, a playground, tennis courts, outdoor basketball hoops, an indoor gym, ping pong, and a recreation center. The 44 muni line runs though silver ave. but there is also access to other bus lines. There is a Bell Market on silver that many of the residents go to. Very close to many asian restaurants on San Bruno Ave.

"Silver Ave-deceivingly quite, but unpredictable"

Silver Street
Silver St. is adjacent to the street where I was raised. I frequented Silver St. as I visited my friend who lived in that area. The 44 public bus line runs on Silver, which is over 2 miles long and although it is mostly residential, it is close to accessible super markets and local businesses and stores. In the corner of Upper Silver (Silver and Mission) is a Jewish home for the elderly and offers great volunteer opportunities. Although Silver St. is mostly residential, the lower part is more infamous for gang activity and crime- it isn’t safe to walk home after dark. Upper Silver is a mediocre area to settle with family, whereas the lower part is not as safe! The many houses on Silver are small and fairly old, but none reach back all the way to the 1900s. The street has no aesthetic appeal nor does it have exciting events happening at anytime, but it is easy to get somewhere else from Silver.
