Living in Bushrod (Oakland, CA)
|Questions and Advice about the Bushrod Neighborhood||Related Pages|
Hello, We are considering a move to North Oakland - not Temescal but the neighborhoods on the other side of 24 toward Emeryville / Berkeley - and I wonder if this group can share any more extensive advice than is in the archives. We are coming from San Francisco and looking for an affordable neighborhood. My main question is around safety. Does it feel safe to people who live there? Walking to and from Macarthur BART, say at dark (8 PM?). Is there a vibrant community and a friendly neighborhood feel? The only family I know who lived there moved away because of crime. Thanks for any guidance and advice! I really appreciate it! Anon
Re: Schools, commutable,urban under $500k?
I just bought a house in the Bushrod neighborhood in North Oakland five months ago. It has almost all the things you are looking for: diversity, affordability, close to FWY and emeryville, and we can walk to rockridge, elmwood, temescal, and berkeley. Some of the schools are a little sketchy, but others like Peralta are great. Its a really great area!
