"Not bad for gentrified Oakland"

Let's start by being clear about what Staten Avenue is NOT: It is not a place to raise kids. It is not without crowds. It is not comprised of cozy residences - and it IS a place where you will be on an eternal hunt to find a parking space. However, there are some great perks to living here as well. The area is close to downtown and even closer to Lake Merritt - easily walking distance. The renovated apartments around here are great, public transportation is even better, and across Bellevue Avenue, you will find a fraction of the crowds that are on this street.

Compared to the rest of the Bay Area, the prices are a fraction of the cost, especially the rentals and shares. There is no way that you could live in San Francisco and get the same kind of proximity to the amenities that you have here, and amenities (restaurants, bars, coffee shops) do exist within walking distance.

However, at the end of the day you are still in a crowded area in Oakland. At least it is a safe, crowded area with the lake nearby.
  • Decent culture in the area
  • Close to Lake Merritt
  • Great public transportation
  • Crowded
  • Impossible to find parking

"Going to the park?"

Staten Avenue in Oakland, CA is a street that mostly consists of residential homes (apartments and condos, varying stories, that sort of thing), beginning at Palm Avenue in the north and finishing off on Bellevue Avenue in the south where it ends up neighboring with its sister street, Perkins Street, and the much shorter and quieter Ellita Avenue. Like those two streets, it is a nice entry into the pleasant and lovely area of Lakeside Park.
