I really like that area actually, but as a young woman I always feel the need to walk in groups and take cabs when possible.

The best way to find out about local crime statistics is to contact the local precinct. For the fastest information you can use Trulia's crime section: or go to which is a great site too.

Best of luck!

Like the other answers say, many people have varrying opinions of different neighborhoods in SF. My favorite site for crime reports is Check it out and see what types of crimes have been reported recently in the area.

Personally, I feel the neighborhood is pretty safe, but there is quite a bit of homelessness around there, and it's definitely more of an urban feel than some other parts of the city. 83 McAllister is a great building. I actually almost bought a place there once myself, so have toured it extensively.

I'd be happy to help if you have any more questions about the area or the building itself.

i grew up one block from there. but as a real estate professional i suggest you contact the tenderloin police station for data and facts. i can say that with the UC Hastings campus on the next block, there is state police presence in additional to federal (federal building 2 blocks away) and city (station is on same block).

Everyone has a different opinion of every area. Anna is very correct and you should do your own research online at different crime sites (even the police dept has one), talk to locals and business owners in the area and ask your Realtor if they know anyone who lives in the area that you could talk too.

Good luck

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
