Fruitvale is a really great place. It's good to walk during the day. Its koo to kick it at during the day but after 7 or 7:30 it could get kind of dangerous. A lot of teens go kick it there during the day and night. They have a lot of stores and places to go eat at, bart is right there too, they also have a public library. I think is one of the prettiest places in Oakland. Theres a lot of Hispanics around the fruitvale area, and a few Asians and African Americans. Over there in Fruitvale they make festivels to celebrate El Cinco de Mayo Or El Dia de Los Muertos ( The Day of the Dead ). It;s a pretty good place to go with the family or friends during the festivals or even jus to kick it and go eat or look around.
