I agree, a piece of grass that is all to yourself is nice. I really think that is why the Sunset is so desirable to some folks. You get pretty much a semi suburban experience in the confines of the Fab 7x7. Except for better weather, pretty much everything you really need and want is there. I am telling you, my wifey will not leave the Sunset without kicking and screaming. "Reliable" public transportation to downtown, plenty of grocery stores (chain or indep asian) and decent eats (arguable). It could well change soon with more inlaws coming online but for now, most Sunset (not all) areas have even great free street parking (yes, street cleaning days, watch out). And last but not least, it is relatively calm in the crime stats. With its relatively flat to moderate topography, perhaps why old folks even like it and stay to the very end. Want to buy my Sunset home, anybody?????
