Help the community by answering this question:


Potrero Ave. is a very busy street so expect quite a bit of noise/air pollution. There’s an empty lot on the corner of Mariposa St. and Potrero Ave., which is dirty and used by the homeless and graffiti artists. Car break-ins are frequent since some sidewalks are not well lit. Car accidents from speeding vehicles along Potrero Ave. are also a problem. SF General Hospital is located up the street so expect a good deal of sirens from ambulances.

Even the shortest walk seems to take forever. Potrero Hill is a quiet, mellow neighborhood. Keep your car clean of any visible valuables. The bums are there but most likely they will keep to themselves. Muggings happen sometimes but not too frequently.
