    "We love our quaint community up on the hill. The coffee shops know my order, restaurant staff know us by name, we play fetch in the park with our neighbors dogs, and they play and joke with our kids. We pick up trash off the street, our neighbors sweep the sidewalk. Everyone helps out. The panoramic views of the bay and city skyline, bay lights, and historic homes make it feel like you’re in a big city, but the neighborhood makes it feel like a small town. Located centrally - easy access to restaurants, services like dry cleaning, downtown, transit, the marina, etc. we’ve lived in the marina, north beach, and soma - Russian hill is the perfect spot in the city. Oozing w character and filled with kind, familiar faces and friendly neighbors. Also it’s built on bedrock, not fill, so way safer in earthquakes."

    "I've lived in the Fisherman's Wharf/lower Russian Hill area for 26 years. The scenery is beautiful-- Fort Mason, Aquatic Park, Golden Gate Bridge, Marina Blvd. Iconic Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiardelli Square are here. The SF Opera, Ballet, and Symphony Hall are reachable by bus (or foot, depending on how much one likes to walk). The area is alive, vibrant, and very convenient with several large grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, post offices, restaurants, fitness centers, and boutique stores, you name it, all within easy walking distance. Many bus lines run through the area. You don't need to have a car in this part of San Francisco. Several wonderful neighborhoods are reachable by foot, including the Marina, North Beach and Chinatown. Several good shopping districts are both walkable and also accessible by bus including Union Square, Union Street/Chestnut Street in Cow Hollow, and the Polk Street shopping district . There is a relatively smaller homeless population here, although this is an issue everywhere in the city. On the down side, there is a lot of traffic congestion, bicyclists on the walking paths, limited parking, and , overall noise and dirt. These issues have been worsening in recent years. And, there is less of an actual neighborhood feel here since we are in between established neighborhoods, and incorporate so much of the tourist area. There are few single family houses. Most of the housing consists of rent-controlled apartment buildings . As the older, long term residents die, younger people move in and out often due to the high prices of rentals. "
