"it has its good points..."

let me start with the bad...
if you are a female and want to walk down a street and be harassed not only by men walking down the street, but also men driving by in cars...this is your street. It is pretty shameful.

There are also a lot of strange homeless on this street. Not that homeless are bad, I honestly dont think people really begged too much, but it is a lot of homeless who are suffering from mental illness...at least that is how it seemed to me.

Thats it for bad, but there isnt anything really great about this street either...
There used to be a grocery store...i believe it was made into a mexican grocery store. There is a lot of ethnic food primarily mexican or vietnamese. There is also a lot of vegan/vegetarian food which is always good. I believe there are 3 resturants on this street. There is one place that is some kind of bbq...not vegetarian but there is always dead roasted chickens hanging in the window (10th and Santa Clara).

I guess one of the coolest parts about this street is that it is a very central street to downtown San Jose. I think if you had to pick a "main street" Santa Clara would be it. I think the addition of the city hall space dome made it a little more interesting.

I dont know that people actually live on Santa Clara Street. I know there are buildings with apartments above them, but for the most part this street is for businesses.
