Review of Redwood City, California

Nice place, but being paved with apartments.
Star Rating - 10/7/2018
Lovely weather. Safe place to live (I live in Redwood Shores). The only thing that keeps this place from being 5 stars is the cost of housing. When you have to pay an average of $3000 a month for a 1BR/1BA 700 sq ft apartment... Plus when I came here in 2014, it was a charming little place stuck in the 50's and 60's with family-owned businesses everywhere. In 4 short years, everything has started to get plowed under to build more overpriced apartment buildings. Redwood City used to be "too far" from SF to the north and SJ to the south, but costs there have driven a "housing boom" here, if you call huge towers full of 500 sq ft studios that rent for $4000 a month and sit right against the Caltrain tracks a housing boom.
