"Big, Noisy, Hard to cross!"

Having to cross Cesar Chavez at any time of the day is a dangerous chore but I have to do it twice a day! I can't tell you how many close calls I've had with people taking the corner of Valencia Street at Chavez too fast, and the people who live near there will yell at you if they see it happen.. as if I'm at fault for crossing on a green light! Not much in the way of shopping or eating, mainly it's just to get from one spot to another. I would avoid it if I could.
Amyjo9 Foolish, you are thinking of the part of Cesar Chavez that stretches through the Mission. The portion of Cesar Chavez that runs through Noe Valley, from Guerrero to Douglass St is neither wide nor busy. In fact, the street is discontinuous and is a very quiet, cute street. Have you ever been to Noe Valley? Here is a map. http://www.zipmaps.net/California/San_Francisco_County/Z_Noe_Valley.htm

"Popular street for entrance and exits off of Highway 280 and 101."

Army / Cesar Chavez Street is a pretty popular street in San Francisco. It is now mainly known as Army Street but as many true San Franciscans know, it is previously known as Cesar Chavez Street. I do not know why they changed the name of the street, but there are still signs that say Army / Cesar Chavez Street so it’s easy not to get confused. This street is very popular for its entrance / exit out of highway 280 and highway 101. It runs pretty long and will connect you to Guerrero Street. It may not be nicest of all areas as there are some public housing close by, but generally it isn’t too bad and it should not deter anyone from living near here as the housing is very nice. My friend lives off of Army Street and her house is gorgeous! With easy access to the freeway, and downtown San Francisco, Army might make a good spot to live!

Amyjo9 Previously known as Cesar Chavez? You've got that backwards. Regardless, again, the highway exits/entrance, the public housing are all in the part that goes through the Mission. Cesar Chavez is not a popular street to take anywhere in Noe Valley, because it is a discontinuous street due to two steep hills. Please look at a map!
