where are you guys thinkin of living?
Are you doing this for financial reasons? If so, Emeryville would not make economic sense (just as expense as SF) but El Cerrito could make it worthwhile, though that commute would be blah, imo.
you're right, in strictly monetary terms, emeryville is not that far off from sf. however, you can find similarly priced one bedroom apartments/studios with much more square footage in emeryville. also, the area is pretty nice and allows you to escape a little bit from the rush of the city. i'm also trying to think about where i'm going to keep my car, knowing parking is cheaper in east bay than in sf.
that being said, there are of course many distinct advantages to living in the city (shorter commute, for one). i would really love to live in mcallister tower, i just don't kno wat i'm gonna do with my car. any suggestions?
