    I use this station as it has the best people watching. But also watch out for your own people as it's not the safest-

    No underground BART bathrooms since Sept 11, sign says. Aboveground bathroom is best avoided. Best bet: buy a burrito at the least crowded/most open taqueria & use theirs.

    It's worth the walk just a few blocks over on Valencia to try Four Barrel Coffee. Great java AND tunes on vinyl - actual LPs on an old-school record-playing machine. Read more

    Staircase bike wheel lift channels are key! Eliminates having to carry your ride on your shoulder.

    Lots of drug dealers, addicts and associated crime in the plaza. Don't have your phone in your hand or else it will be snatched from you by force. BART Police is useless they're never around!

    Hold onto your purses, iPods, backpacks and dignity for when you get above ground the undesirables roam like zombies!

    If its super busy and your train doesn't arrive for at least 15 minutes, jump on a train heading in the opposite direction so you have a better chance of getting a seat.

    Watch your surroundings! Lots of muggings happen here. Purses, cell phones and laptops. Lots of homeless and drug addicts, one of the worst stations to go to in sf.

    Beware of zombies at the surface. Recognizable by a slow ambling walk, mostly harmless, and easily dodged. The presence of flesh-eating bacteria cannot be ruled out. Avoid contact, move along swiftly.

    Keep your eye out for brightly colored BART ART outside this station. Check out Casa Bonampak at 1051 Valencia St. for the real deal.
