Cheaper alternative neighbourhoods to Noe Valley in SFO?
My wife doesn't want to go out of SF, since that's one of the main reasons we're moving from Canada. So what are your thoughts on any similar neighborhoods in SF? Ideally, we're looking for
1) shops, cafes, bakeries, boutique stores all within walking distances (1-2 blocks)
2) lots of other families with younger children
3) proximity to the Google shuttles (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?gl=US&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=200078529347186657525.000465bc1e7a8844eb2f9)
4) great community & laid back lifestyle
