"Not Quite Out of this World But Nice"

Just to the north of the explorer themed neighborhood there are a set of streets and courts named after the astronauts from the original space missions: Armstrong, Shepard, Grissom, etc. This is the Astronauts neighborhood.

The homes here are really nice contemporary style homes. You don’t get the views of San Pablo Bay as much up here because the hills around much of the neighborhood block it out, but you do get that same clean feel that you have from some of the other themed neighborhoods.

The homes here date from the late 1980’s and sell for around $350,000.

There are, of course, the usual drawbacks to living in Hercules in general, from the mediocre schools to horrible commute.
