"Affordable Menlo Park"

Henderson Avenue, in Menlo Park's Belle Haven neighborhood, is an affordable, more run-down street in a neighborhood just waiting to be gentrified. Given the Menlo Park zip code in the middle of Silicon Valley, I'm surprised that the area hasn't already had investors buy every property. But Henderson Avenue still maintains some of Belle Haven's grit.

That being said, it is still better than neighboring East Palo Alto. Gang activity is slightly less prevalent, the streets are cleaner, and there are nice little touches like stop signs and sidewalks. This is probably a better place to invest than its next-door neighbor, though there is still a ways to go.
  • Affordable
  • Good Investment
  • Better than East Palo Alto
  • Questionable safety
  • Run-down
  • Poor school system
