A historic old city founded way, way back in 1852, and in many ways San Francisco’s rival city across the bay, Oakland is the largest and most populous city in Alameda County (about 425,000 residents), and the third largest city in Northern California, behind only San Jose and San Francisco. The weather is great, the commute is great, there are many jobs, the downtown is lively and dynamic, there is an international airport, and the largest shipping port in Northern California. Oakland is truly a city that has something for everyone. It often gets unfair criticism due to the lower school scores (on average) and higher crime rates (on average), but it has some truly gorgeous neighborhoods and homes (especially in the hills), almost perfect moderate weather all year round, plentiful jobs, many parks, affordable housing, and professional Football, Baseball, AND Basketball teams in town. Among Oakland’s numerous neighborhoods and districts are Ashby, Skyline, Montclair, Jack London Square, Hiller Highlands, Claremont, Rockridge, Montclair, Lake Merritt, Trestle Glen, Temescal, Dimond, Downtown, Fruitvale, MacArthur, West Oakland, Claremont Hills, Crestmont, Adams Point, Chinatown, Crocker Highlands, Elmhurst, Knowland Heights, Leona Heights, Glenview, Grand Lake, Haddon Hill, Lakeshore, Mills College, Oakmore, Laurel, Lincoln Heights, Maxwell Park, Sequoyah Heights, North Oakland, Oakland Hills, Redwood Heights, Upper Rockridge, Oak Knolls, and more. With just a few exceptions (Lake Merritt, Trestle Glen, for example), generally speaking, the better neighborhoods tend to be in the hills, while the lesser ones tend to be in the flats. (This is generally the case with most cities, in fact — the higher, the fewer,as the saying goes…) The California state census in 2010 counted 160,588 residential housing units in Oakland, of which 72,107 were single family detached houses, 6,645 were single family attached homes, 81,380 were apartments, condos, or townhouses, and 456 were mobile homes.
