Northbrae, Berkeley, California is a functional neighborhood that made the American Planning Association's list of Great Places in America in 2011. This may have been due to views of the San Francisco Bay, mixed land uses, and Eco-conscious design. Its borders include Solano Avenue to the North, Eunice and Hopkins Streets to the South, Spruce Street to the East, and the Albany city limits to the West. It has a shopping and business district, as well as hilly terrain made up of volcanic rock, rhyolite, and 136 stairways carved into the landscape.
