Q. We lived in the Peninsula Bay Area before we moved to CT 8 yrs ago; now we might be moving back to N. CA. My husband might be working down in Fremont by 880/680 area. What kind of a commute he might expect if we live in San Leandro or Hayward area? We'd also like any comments about these two towns - what kind of neighborhoods are good for 45-54 age range, good restaurants (or within an easy drive), prefer views. We're looking at houses at least 2,500 sq feet; 3+ bedrooms; 2+ baths. E. Kinna Thanks!

Welcome back to Silicon Valley. There are several newer developments in the areas you're considering, however a view is almost always pricey-or a longer commute. Check www.localism.com posts for info about the cities you are interested in. Many areas' prices here in Santa Clara, Alameda & San Mateo counties are driven by high-performing school districts. If those don't matter to you personally, you have a lot more options. Historically Hayward and Union City have been considered rather industrial towns by locals.
