This is a noisy area with a lot of foot and car traffic. The Richmond tends to be isolated from the rest of the city as public transportation isn't great there. A car is a must. The area is pretty foggy and cold.
It can be too quiet, not citylike at all, on this block. Atop a hill or crest, when the fog is blowing, it can graze deeply into the trees. Street parking is limited, and house prices can be expensive.
It is quite far away from the city part of San Francisco. To get there, you would have to take a car or public transportation. This is not the best location for someone that wants to be walking distance to all the popular clubs and lounges.
