There is easy access to the downtown area as well as the Peninsula via the CalTrain depot.
The community is an interesting mix of young hip and old-school and relatively safe.
If you would like to know more, I would love to help!
Dogpatch has for years been considered a "transitional" neighborhood, with an interesting mix of industrial, historic, and modern construction. It's not unusual to see a gorgeous Victorian single family home, a modern loft building, and industrial warehouses all in the same block.
With the opening of the 3rd street light rail earlier in the year and the continued development of the Mission Bay area of San Francisco, the dogpatch will continue to be seen as an interesting and desirable part of San Francisco to live in.
Neighbors hope that planners and developers will build from the legacy of Dogpatch's colorful past in guiding the district to an even brighter future. This information was found on. http://www.pier70sf.org/dogpatch/dogpatch_history.htm
