Potrero HIll's North Slope is very safe - everything between 22nd and Mariposa, and between De Haro and Pennsylvania is basically just fine, or at least as safe as any other neighborhood ever gets. 18th St. has really experienced a resurgence in neighborhood life, so there are good numbers of people out as late as midnight or 1am on weekends. Car break-ins (snatch-n-grabs) have been an issue, but face-to-face crime has not. As you get closer to the housing projects and to SF General, the crime maps get more crime-filled.

If you're coming up the hill from the Caltrain Station on 22nd, note that the few blocks surrounding the train station is desolate and not yet well-lit at night. I don't hear about a lot of bad things happening down there, but awareness is required. Things get more densely residential by the time you get up to 20th and Pennsylvania.

It is really up to you where and when you feel safe. You can only know by going tot he area on different days and times. You could feel safe and me as a 56 year old man with bad knees wouldn't.
Dogpatch is a really cool part of San Francisco. There are some really good resturants there now and more coming. It is so close to the Mission Bay biotech ans UCSF developmnets that it can't help but become better.
Not so long ago it was very different. Very little housing, what there was wasn't always showing pride of ownership. Lots of warehouses, heavy industry and it was the location of the lsat two ship builders in SF. It still is the location of a drydock facility. Pretty cool to see one of the big luxury liners sitting there. Historically it was the area where the slaughterhouses and tanning factories were.
Now it has some of the nicest retrofit residential buildings like Esprit Park which will house a new destination resturant from the owners of A16 on Chestnut St. Shopping will be done at the Safeway across Mission Creek or at the Whole Foods on Potrero. You can cross 280 on 18th or 20th and get to the Whole Foods and all the resturants, coffee shops, book stores along 18th.
One the Mission Bay development is complete and the areas beyond Dogpatch are redeveloped Dogpatch will be a very different area than it is now.
