"Once you get here, don't move"

Traffic is horrible coming in from any direction, but if you make it in, stay awhile - there's lots to do.

Aside from all of the amenities of San Francisco City College, and there are many, as the average enrollment is over 100,000 students annually, the neighborhood offers too much to list. There is a tremendous gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, as well as lots of multicultural awareness exhibits. As they say, whatever floats your boat.

If you appreciate art, you won't want to miss the large mural, Pan American Unity, created in 1940 by Diego Rivera. The mural is exhibited on campus.

Pizza is a hot commodity around a college campus, and Little Star Pizza is known to work wonders for starving students and locals alike.

"Driving is a Madhouse!"

Driving in this area is absolutely crazy. Getting off the 280 south exit is particularly crazy as the roads all come together in an odd way. Public transit dominates Ocean and the traffic just moves slowly. Sadly, it's a road many must travel to get through that area.

If you can get off the main streets and slip onto the roads north of Ocean, you'll have lots of traffic of a different kind -- the sort that comes with the youthful vibe associate with college. If you can get to the college by public transit -- relatively easy considering the proximity to the Balboa Park Bart station -- you may have an easier time getting around. And if you can't, stay alert if you're driving! I'd rate this a 2.5 if I could, but 2 just seems too low, so I give it a 3.
