"Near two basins"

Bacon Street may sound like a delicious street, but in actuality, this street is quite plain. There isn’t much to do until you reach San Bruno Avenue where the restaurants and shops begin to appear. Bacon Street also runs through two basins. There is also the Portola Library and a few schools on this street. Bacon Street reminds me much of my area in San Francisco where I live, the homes are close to one another and the neighborhood is relatively quiet. The streets are pretty clean, there’s a good amount of trees and bushes as well to help beautify the street. Although this is no place for a tourist to visit, this street would be an ideal street to live on.

"A quiet street off of the busy San Bruno Ave."

This street is a relatively quiet street off of the busy San Bruno Ave. It is mostly a residential street. It is close to many things. It runs right by Martin Luther King Jr. school, Palega park is very close, and John McLaren is very close as well. On San Bruno, there are many stores and businesses. This street has access to muni lines like the 9, 29, and 54. The street vibe is pretty good. It is relatively safe most of the time. It would be a pretty good place to live because it is so close to so many things.
