Hi Christina,

Street parking in the Sunset is certainly better than most parts of the city. Areas like Irving street, Judah street, and Taraval street are the busiest streets in the Sunset so it usually consists of more meter parking and may require a street permit to park for more than 2 hours. The outer Sunset would be better for parking since there are typically less restaurants and businesses. ... more

We are new to the city and not used to all of the noises. We live on 35th 1/2 block from the Judah N-line. We can hear it, but it's a decently faint noise from inside our house.

All the answers have brought something to the table. But I would like you to note that 2 car parking not only is valuable but also creates options. For example, if you have a 2 car garage in the sunset which ( I am very familiar with) that 2 car garage which is usually tandem will create options for someone whom may be looking to expand. A lot of homes in the sunset have downstairs improvements usually using that second parking spot to add another room. I believe it is much more reasonable in cost to build an extra room down whether it be a family room/ bedroom than to put an upper addition on to the upstairs of your home. Therefore when people see a 2 car garage they are also looking at building potential.

Hope this helps.
