I discovered Walk Score from Bets. The site rates a neighborhood's accessiblity for people on foot. The site lists some restaurants by type (with drop down arrow to expand). However the info is a little outdated as it lists an Italian restaurant in my neighborhood which has changed into a Mexican restaurant within the past year. And it seems to think Tully's coffee is the closest at .72 miles distance, when I can name a few others within 4 city blocks from my house.
Old house in San Francisco: 83/100. (I live out in the "boonies" of SF)
New house in Sunnyvale: 60/100.
Moving to our new house will be a culture shock for me, even though I'm still living in the San Francisco Bay Area and not even as far as the "outer" Bay Area either. I've lived in San Francisco for so many decades, it would just feel weird to not be able to walk to places or easily take public transportation a short distance to places. What do you mean I will have to drive somewhere if I want to go get coffee, pick up groceries, or visit the library?!
We still haven't gotten our shutters yet, so our living room and dining room (both facing the street) are fishbowls. I'm not sure I would want to live in the house before the shutters get installed.
I still haven't decided what to do with our large dining room table. It is about 8 ft long (~100 inches or 2.5 m). Even at 5 ft (~60 inches or 1.5 m), with the 2 center panels removed, it is too large to fit in the dining room at the new house. :-( Well, it'd fit, but we'd never get chairs around it. What to do? I've entertained the idea of placing it in our living room. Of course this would look pretty weird...
