What parts, if any, of Pacific Heights are unsafe?

Are there any streets or areas that have more crime? What areas should I avoid moving to if I am concerned with crime?

If you are looking for stats, use the new Trulia crime map. You can also use the CrimeReports website to see the number and type of reported criminal activity in any neighborhood.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, Are you kidding? Police will shoot you on site if you so much as dress poorly in Specific Whites. You have clearly not lived in SF for very long...

Hi Eric-

As realtors, we do not determine what is "safe" and "not safe". This is why you've been referred to various sites where you can look up crime statistics. "Safe" is relative; what makes you feel safe may not make someone else feel safe. Check out the websites and if you have any mroe conecerns, I would suggest that you call the local police department to talk to them further.

You've gotten some good advice pointing you to of the more popular sites for crime mapping. This is the one I use and in my opinion is the best. Lance has a good link as well. Being in the running for reserve SFPD police officer, I always use this link in evaluating safety for an area. (contains usage info)

Best of luck

They can give you additional background info.

Hey Eric,

As a resident of Pac Heights, I can tell you that it is pretty safe. I am a young female and I feel comfortable walking around by myself after dark. My biggest concern is my ability to walk in heels up the hills, not so much the surrounding neighbors!

Of course, always use your best judgement. Most crimes in Pac Heights are burglaries rather than violent crimes:,CA,Pacific_Heights/

The funny thing with SF neighborhoods is that they all bleed together, check out Trulia's Crime Maps to learn about surrounding areas!

Hope that helps,
