It all depends on what part of Oakland you live in Posted On: 6/3/2008 12:16:32 PM
It gets so mad when people say Oakland is a bad place to live! It all depends on what part of Oakland you live in. East Oakland is really what you hear of all the time when you hear about drugs, crime, etc. Most of the crime that goes on in Oakland is in East Oakland. I’m from Oakland (North Oakland, close to the Berkeley boarder line). Now not evening all of East Oakland is bad. Once you get to certain areas in East Oakland you will realize that it is bad. For example E.14th Street (International Blvd) is bad from the beginning from lake merit on up till you hit the city of San Leandro. One good part of east Oakland is the Laurel district. It's a very diverse area. Nice hardly too much crime in that area. As if you live in 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and part of the 100’s Avenues. Believe it or not that where most of Oakland’s crime occurs.
But let me say I would love to live here it just to live in a good area in Oakland you would have to pay more for the price of a home. I grew up in the lower Rockridge area in Oakland. Many of people in the area (Rockridge) say that they love it there and wouldn’t want to move because it such a family oriented area. So get the facts. Not all of Oakland is bad. Oakland is divided in 4 parts North Oakland, West Oakland, East Oakland and Downtown Oakland. So the next time you watch the news, read the newspaper, or hear something word of mouth. Ask or see what area of Oakland it happens in!
