"Another nice one"

Lincoln Avenue, like all of the other streets in Crescent Park, comes with the same perks and pitfalls: It is beautiful, suburban, perfectly manicured, and designed not to be a through street. The schools are great, the medical facilities are even better, and downtown is less then a mile away, which probably matters most to the younger populations who don't care about either of the two aforementioned.

It is also highly overpriced, an unrealistic place for young people to live unless they are renting a room, directly adjacent to University Avenue and its accompanying traffic, and equally close to the somewhat impoverished East Palo Alto, where home break-ins (in nice homes...with money...and nice things to take...) are not unheard of.

Overall, a very nice spot, but these are some of the pitfalls to be aware of.
  • Great layout
  • Close to downtown
  • Great town amenities (schools, hospitals...)
  • Very expensive
  • Close to EPA
  • University traffic
