I wish I knew about this area sooner! I've lived in SF for 15years and have moved 12 times. I've lived in most districts in the city, including SOMA, upper Haight, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Western Addition, Mission/Dolores, Not-So-Tenderloin, Cole Valley, Glen Park & Twin Peaks / Upper Market, (to name a few)... by far my favorite place is Bernal. Great weather, great community, easy access to everything including frwys, parks, restaurants, Bart, etc. You feel a little remote (in a good way), just enough to make you appreciate city living and not having to move your car every 2 hrs, while at the same time can get to the hottest new restaurant on Valencia street in 5 minutes.
