"Lived there, was sad when I moved away"

This neighborhood may not be for everybody, but it was totally for me. The housing in this area is zesty, and separated, allowing every house to take on a personality of its own. Urban professionals and retirees alike, this neighborhood ran the entire rainbow of culture.

Like the rest of San Fransisco, it's very hilly. The area surrounding it has been filmed several times for highspeed chases in action movies, which attests to how dynamic the area is.

I lived here in 2007, and it was a very good experience. If I still lived in San Fransisco, this is where I would live.

"Residential Street, quiet and safe."

22nd avenue is similar to many of the streets in the Sunset. It stretches from the edge of Golden Gate Park at Lincoln Street all the way to Stern Grove at Wawona Street. Most houses on this street, as on many other streets, are typical two-story houses with an outer gated door. It leads into a small entryway before the actual door to the home. This street doesn’t have a lot to offer in terms of entertainment or nightlife, because it’s a residential street mostly. It’s relatively quiet, and there’s a huge hill between Noriega and Taraval. However, if you are on certain cross streets like Irving, Noriega, or Taraval, you can find restaurants, stores like Walgreens, or movie rental places. The 71 bus line runs on 22nd avenue for about six blocks, so there is a form of transportation. 22nd avenue also runs along the back of Lincoln High School, located on Quintara.

"Avenue street that runs in the Sunset and Richmond distrct."

22nd Avenue is another avenue street in the Sunset and Richmond district. It begins at the edge of Stern Grove in the Sunset District and ends at the prestigious Lake Street of the Richmond District. 22nd avenue is cut off for a mentionable portion by Golden Gate Park which separates the Richmond District from the Sunset District.

The street itself doesn’t boast too much, but the cross streets and nearby avenues prove to make 22nd Avenue a desired location. There are not many retail stores except for the intersections with Taraval Street and Geary Street. When 22nd Avenue intersects with either Taraval or Geary, one will know as there will be many stores and restaurants on these streets.

22nd Avenue is also one of the cross streets of Lincoln High School. Although generally a pretty decent high school, there have been incidents of fights and other criminal acts around the school. The street is a very nice place to live on however. It lays very close to lots of action and stores. Schools are accessible by short bus ride or foot and large grocery stores are only a short drive away.
