"Why doesn't everyone live here?"

This is a great neighborhood. All the streets have good sized lots and lots of greenery. The homes are well cared-for. The lawns are all mostly manicured. Even the ones that are letting the draught kill their lawns have fruit trees.

The neighborhood borders Central Park on one end and the Hayward Park Caltrain station and Hwy 92 on the other end. New office buildings are growing like weeds next to the station. From 92, you can easily access the Bridgepointe Shopping Center.

The public elementary school is surprisingly bad. But there are two private elementary schools that are outstanding and the jr. high and high school are among the best in the state.

There is a Safeway on El Camino along with a handful of other specialty shops and restaurants and it's a short walk to downtown San Mateo.

What's not to like? ... I mean, besides the fact that homes are expensive (a 3br is currently over $1.6M).
