"Quiet, Peaceful, and Residential neighborhood in the heart of San Francisco's Sunset district."

18th Avenue is a very peaceful and quiet street in the Sunset District of San Francisco. The street is about 3 miles away from Ocean Beach, but walking distance to various parks in the Sunset including Larsen Park, and Grand View Park.

The street is mainly residential housing with the famous wall-to-wall Sunset housing. The houses here are typical townhouses with no houses really significantly bigger than the other houses.

Although 18th Avenue is mainly residential, it intersects with various busy streets such as Taraval Street and Judah Street. Running parallel to 18th Avenue is 19th avenue only one block away and is one of San Francisco’s busiest streets.

Although 18th Avenue isn’t the busiest street, it does house a cross street for a Safeway Supermarket, a big middle school, and various small businesses.

"Urban suburb in SF"

I love the inner sunset neighborhood in which I live. My particular street is a bit noisy with the N Judah rumbling past and the fact that a good chunk of 19th Avenue traffic that wants to turn left ends up doing it via 18th Ave. We've got fabulous access to Golden Gate Park, lots of great restaurants in walking distance, a wonderful inexpensive produce market and a library down the street.

"i live here"

so it is automatically cool. wow, rating my street is too much work. more words to get to fifteen.
RuRoh Dude - that's it? hehe! What do you do for food? Also, if you live there, why didn't you "Join This Street" ? Sounds like shopping sucks near where you live :( At least the important 'eating out' is high (you gave it 4 out of 5).
