There is a considerable amount of crime committed in this neighborhood, especially on the Southeast side of Potrero Hill. If you do decide to live in the neighborhood, you are well advised to get a dog, have an alarm placed in your home and be careful at night. If you have a car and no garage, expect your car to be stolen or broken in to. That's the harsh reality of living in this neighborhood. SFSD has a heavy presence (undercover, squad cars, etc.) Last week, a member of a ring that has been responsible for home invasions, robberies, burglaries, etc. was arrested. Otherwise, it's a great neighborhood, it's dog-friendly, has good weather and a wonderful combination of friendly families, professionals, etc.
