Anyone in the Bay area?

Can you tell me the pro's and con's of living there? I live in Detroit and it is real hard out here. Wayne county has very few resources and the public transportaion is bad. Basically if you do not live with ur family u are struggling.

  • I have a home in Santa Cruz Cty, but that's about 75 miles south of SF on the coast...beautiful, rustic area. Concord? I lived in that area..east bay- very nice and lots of young families-still quite expensive. Anything north to Santa Rosa, about 1 hour from SF is expensive. North east to Vallejo is pricey- South is expensive to San Benito Cty. Transportation around the immediate SF area is good. Oakland, across the bay from SF is more affordable (flat lands) but the Oakland Hills are pricey. South east is pricey until you pass over the Altamont pass into Tracy (technically the central valley). The Bay area is expensive.....

  • There are nice parts and lousy parts of Oakland. The Hills and North Oakland (on the Berkeley border) are nice- There is crime in Oakland, but not like Detroit or Chicago. I worked in Oakland for 20 years- it's a very working class city.

  • Okay, SFO is one of the best cities on the West Coast but seriously, you need BUCKS to live comfortably. It will be an enormous economic change from Detroit. Now if dough isn't an issue, GO!!!!
