Berkeley welcomes all homeless, does nothing to dissuade transient crime, bums are deeply comfortable strewing their trash and feces all over the streets and have taken over downtown.

Berkeley is the perfect college town! There are so many amazing places to eat and hangout, and the weather is usually pretty nice.

Berkeley is a wonderful city full of an interesting, open-minded and intelligent group of people. The city is very culturally diverse and open to accepting anyone from anywhere. The food scene is to die for and if organically grown is what you live by, look no further than Berkeley grocery stores, farmers markets and more.
