"nothing remarkable, but a decent safe place to live"

the street itself isn't particularly noteworthy. there are lots of single family residences; the part of the block that leads up to mission street starts to see more traffic, both foot and car, so it's noisier and less kept-up, but the whole mission terrace area is pretty safe. nice neighbors. my biggest complaint was the fog! augh, you could *see* the stark fog line cutting across san jose ave. driving north, you're surrounded by gray chilliness, then you go into the tunnel and come out the other side... into bright sunshine and warmth! seriously, there was like a quarter mile difference between living in a sunbelt and living with terminal Seasonal Affective Disorder.

"a small residential street off of San Jose Ave."

Theresa is a small street off of San Jose Ave and it continues on to Alemany Blvd. It is a residential street. I used to walk home on this street everyday. It is very safe almost all the time. Nearby is the large Balboa Park. This park has a couple baseball fields, a big soccer stadium, a public swimming pool, and a playground. A few blocks down San Jose, there is a popular Street clothing boutique called Invisible Stripes. There is also a good sandwich place across the street from Balboa Park. This street would be a good safe street to live on.
