"Quaint side street in the heart of North Beach"

Valparaiso is a quaint little street that's only 1 block long from Mason to Taylor that is residential. It's cute and friendly. It's also super close to downtown North Beach (walking distance). It's also super close to a German bar where if you like beer, it's the place for you! On top of that it's about a block or two from the library and a stones throw away from the restaurants and cafes that define North Beach.

Traffic is very little because it's only one block. I imagine that parking is tight, but isn't parking tough everywhere in North Beach?

"Do you like cars in front of your garage?"

I rented a room on Valparaiso for about 2 months. Luckily, my lease was month to month, because I became trapped in my apartment way too many times. There is a City College campus right around the corner, and students seem to think it’s perfectly fine to park in front of garage doors during their classes. I hate having anyone towed (especially city college students who probably can’t afford it) but by the 6th time I was made late to work, I gave in and starting calling the tow trucks. Only problem was that, by the time they got there, the car would have been moved yet I was still late. Seemed like a great location when I moved in, but parking trolls were definitely a problem.
