Anyways, you do realize that the the Oakland hills are entirely on the east side of town right? Yes, the hills are the nicest part of Oakland, but there are also plenty of nice parts of Oakland before the elevation rises. Not all parts of "East Oakland" are bad.

I get annoyed with the constant Oakland bashing on this board...as much as I get annoyed by the constant San Jose bashing. Ironically, some of the other posters on this board who also can't stand the Oakland bashing have no problem with all the San Jose bashing that goes on in this forum as well...ironic. Anyways, despite that I think it's ridiculous that there's so much hate for Oakland on this forum.

It is true that Oakland does have some horrible areas. It's also true that Oakland has many very nice safe areas as well where the chances of being a crime victim are very slim.

I recently took my wife to Oakland on a romantic getaway to have a picnic at Joaquin Miller Park, where we took our wedding engagement pictures at...great day. Who would've thought...a romantic day in Oakland??!!

You clearly have not spent any actual amount of time in SJ. The vast majority of the "office parks" you mention are in neighboring Cupertino and Mountain View as opposed to SJ, and saying that most of SJ is full of "chain stores" makes about as much sense as saying most of SF is filled with chain stores.

Fascinating. I've never heard of a town where one could do both.

True but San Jose is a big city and it is kinda like a big suburb so less noise then the normal city.

Obviously the part you're from is like that. It's evident in all of your posts.

^This... you could say exactly the same about parts of SF and Oakland. Hell, you could say that about parts of NYC.

NYC is way more safer then Brooklyn.
