I just moved back to Oakland yesterday. Its great to be home. I was looking for a house in the Cleveland Heights neighborhood but none of the homes I liked were on the market so I settled for a house in Upper Rockridge-another neighborhood.

Do you live in the city of Youngstown?

That looks like a pretty nice neighborhood (I could be wrong though). Your street lights look very bright compared to ours.

I go to Dalhousie. You should definitely try to make the trip! Nova Scotia is a great place, I haven't had a chance to spend nearly enough time outside Halifax but the whole province is gorgeous. I would recommend coming in September or early October if you can come at any time, but I hear its great in the summer too (I haven't spent a summer here yet). And if you aren't afraid of a little snow, any season will do.

LOL...

Now that you mention it, Upper Rockridge is actually lot more expensive than the area I really wanted but I was disappointed cause there are practically NO homes in my first choice.

Lol. I understand where your coming from. Just don't ever take your neighborhood for granted, it looks great. Especially in those pictures. The bay area looks different than I thought it would.

Yes, I live in the city, and I think it's a nice enough neighborhood.

Here is a photo tour I made last year:
Youngstown - Garden District photo tour (56k beware!)

The neighborhood is on the lower west side of the city.

The lights are old. They're still the mercury vapor type, not the orange high pressure sodium. If the pictures seem bright, it's because it was an 8 second exposure. (I can't remember for sure, though)
