    Oh, that sounds like fun. Maybe I will try it.

    If you're ever in SF you can catch a ferry (boat) over to Jack London Square; very pleasant waterfront.

    You can get used to anything, I guess.

    No. I lose faith in humanity every time and then I kick myself for forgetting not to leave valuables in plain sight before they "disappear". I do, however, know the cheapest place to get a broken car window fixed in Oakland.

    I once had some school district keys stolen and had to wait for almost 3 hours for the police to arrive and write a report. I suspect many property crimes and some violent crimes are not reported because the police are such a hassle.

    I would never buy there nor would I go near it.

    I sailed down the Oakland Estuary with friends yesterday and docked at Jack London Square and was surprised by some kind of "bicycle fest". Charming and colorful people, live music, and cold beer; just one of many fun events always going on in Oakland.

    There is some kind of new "Beer and Pizza" pub at Jack London but it was too crowded so we walked up Broadway to Everett and Jones for some delicious BBQ. There are dozens of restaurants coming and going and more than a few that have been there forever. Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Mexican, vegan, and more within a few blocks of Jack London.

    I sound like a tourist rep for my home city.

    I was born in Oakland, have lived and worked there for many years, and have been the victim of numerous property crimes (mostly auto break-ins), but never a victim of any personal violence.

    There are a few neighborhoods that should be avoided, but most of Oakland is safe. Just don't leave anything of value in sight unsupervised and know where you are and where you should not be.
