Help! Relocating from London to Bay Area
Hello! Advice much appreciated! Currently in SF visiting areas as will be moving here from London UK in Feb next year. Have 6 year old and 18 month old. Rather overwhelmed & confused with school lottery system/areas/transport etc!! As I understand Oakland is now also lottery selection system? Have been looking north of rockridge BART/Elmwood. Are we missing a gem of a nice neighbourhood area (in Oakland or Berkeley) with amenities/cafes, good schools and transport close by? We liked the vibe of temescal (currently live in East London). I will be commuting to Mission Bay. Does nobody risk the lottery system? Thanks in advance!
