I was wondering. Is it a general rule that anything east of El Camino Real on the peninsula is less safe than west of El Camino Real. I've noticed the homes west of ECR are a lot newer and a lot more nice. I am asking about the peninsula from South SF to San Mateo.

There are a couple of exceptions, notably Foster City and the area just south of San Bruno Mountain in South San Francisco. And almost all of Burlingame is desirable, except for maybe the area around the Broadway Caltrain station. But in Millbrae or San Bruno, the difference between being west of El Camino and being east of it is night and day. There's a fundamental change in character. That's not to say all of the areas west of El Camino Real are great, and that's not to say that you wouldn't enjoy living on the east side either! San Mateo in particular has quite a few things to offer on its eastern side.

Millbrae is fine on the east side. It wasn't so years ago (before BART, which displaced many people), but that changed a long time ago. The houses are smaller than the west side, but still families in single home residences. Completely safe.

Now San Bruno, no.
