I lived in this neighborhood for 29 years. I have wonderful memories of raising my son in this spot. Walk around the neatly kept gardens and gorgeous homes and you'll fall in love with it too. I moved here before Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg....More

Stayed in Airbnb recently in this area. The homes are quaint and very well kept. Sidewalks prevail with lovely gardens.

I lived there for 10 years and it is a good place to raise children. The people are friendly, the schools are great, shopping is close by, and the sense of community is strong.

Many of those who rated this poorly just walked around and didn't actually take the historic walking tour which is sponsored by Palo Alto Stanford Heritage. If you can't take the tour, you should Google it and use the self guided tour. It's not about...More

It's hard to say why anyone would want to visit Professorkille. It's a residential area of Stanford campus that's anything but interesting. There's not even anything to be curious about. It's a neighborhood of old houses where Professors live. I drive through it every day,...More

This is a beautiful historic neighborhood close to the Stanford campus. Faculty who live in this area are generally of "higher" rank at Stanford as it is an expensive neighborhood to live in. For example, it might be too pricey for a new faculty member...More

There are houses dating back to about 1895, most though are from 1900 to 1930's. This is a pleasant upscale neighborhood with tree lined streets. The old Hewlett-Packard garage is there, 367 Addison, but you can't go up to it, much less see inside. A...More

Sweet old neighborhood near downtown Palo Alto with big houses and tree-lined streets, very nice for a stroll. However, if I were on University Ave. and wanting a walk after lunch, I'd head up Palm Drive and walk around Stanford.

Probably all university towns more than 50 years old have neighborhoods where professors tend to cluster together (and not university housing). Stanford's professors, even from the beginning, were obviously well paid since the homes in this neighborhood are large (not mansions), striking, architecturally diverse, and...More

Great afternoon walk to see the real Palo Alto. Plenty of sidewalks, shade trees over the streets, and well kept, brown Berkeley style homes. Emerson Street is a good place to start.
