"Rundown Homes and Gated Communities"

Rumrill is the western most neighborhood in San Pablo. You can tell that there is a bit of a crime problem here because of the lockable metal screen doors that help protect the homes. Many of the streets do have the kind of rundown, decrepit look to them. Overall the neighborhood does not have a very inviting feel—not that many people will ever experience any part of Rumrill outside of rolling by on Highway 80.

There are 2 or 3 nice, more modern, gated condominium complexes within Rumrill, but that is more the exception than the rule. Most residences here are really rundown looking, shoebox shaped apartment buildings.

Rumrill homes sell for between $100,000 and $300,000, dragged down by the poor schools and high crime.

So basically, the choices for this neighborhood are either to live in one of these ratty apartment complexes or to hide behind the walls of your gated community. Not very uplifting.
