"Some Nice Views But Same Problems"

Not to be confused with the Bayview neighborhood across the Bay in SF proper, the Bayview neighborhood of San Pablo is one of the better neighborhoods you will come across in this area.

And the best part of this neighborhood is on the far northern end where you actually do get some pretty good views of the Bay as the neighborhood climbs up into the hills. This northern end is filled with Eichler style homes with their flat squat look. Some of them—though not the majority—look fairly well kept. I find it kind of nice but it is not the kind of place that exudes wealth or anything like that—it still looks pretty much like a working class neighborhood and the real estate prices reflect that.

Once you get off this hillock on the northern end of Bayview, however, what you find in the flatter section of the neighborhood is a fairly traditional San Pablo neighborhood filled with older Ranch and some Contemporary style homes. There is something kind bushy about this area that almost makes it feel like the last neighborhood at the edge of a bigger metropolitan area—the kind of neighborhood that almost feels rural in spots because the overgrowth of bushes.

Because of the crime and bad schools, house prices don’t really break the $250,000 mark.
Even with the views though, I would not feel safe here and would not want to bring up my kids here because of the poor schools.
