Russian Hill is centrally located, walking distance to Polk St. shopping, Union St. shopping, and Chesnut St. shopping. It's easy to walk to the Marina, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow, North Beach and Union Square. Innumerable buses run to Russian Hill as well from different parts of the city: the 45, 41, 1, and 10. Cable car also available.

The views from Russian Hill are fantastic. The neighborhood is safe and pretty.

This area, known as Parkside, is very calm and residential. While it is close to some buses and relatively close to MUNI's N Judah line, public transit would be difficult to depend upon for daily commuting. There is plenty of parking for those with cars. There is little crime in the area, particularly because it isn't close to many social hang-outs or areas with drug traffic. The area is populated with families and retirees, in general. There are a number of parks nearby, and it is close to the San Francisco Zoo and the ocean. ... more

This area is not ideal for anyone looking for a lot of "city fun." It is very quiet and isolated from nightlife, restaurants, etc. Another problem with this area is that it can be very chilly and foggy, particularly in the mornings and evenings, as it is so close to the ocean. ... more

Presidio Heights home prices are currently appreciating and in my opinion will appreciate over the long run. This is an upscale high end neighborhood and will always been in high demand. Please call me if you would like to buy or sell a home in Presidio Heights.

Thank you,

I lived above the Whole Foods in Potrero Hill for almost 2 years. Which brings me to benefit #1 right away - the Whole Foods. Hot bar was so great on nights we didn't want to cook. And if we wanted to go out, Live Sushi was across the street or we could take an easy (though uphill) walk to 18th Street restaurants.

Overall, our area was a pretty safe, quiet family community. Quiet at night, a tennis court and busy playground at Jackson Playground park, and easy street parking. We loved living there. However, I'm not sure I would have walked too far out of my immediate hood alone late at night.

Even the shortest walk seems to take forever. Potrero Hill is a quiet, mellow neighborhood. Keep your car clean of any visible valuables. The bums are there but most likely they will keep to themselves. Muggings happen sometimes but not too frequently. ... more

Kenny Kim answered:
Home prices in Potrero Hill will most likely continue to improve -- especially in the North Slope area. With the UCSF Mission Bay campus continuing to expand and the growth in SOMA, I can only imagine more folks wanting to move to the neighborhood. I have been actively visiting open houses in the area and from what I've gathered inventory is scarce. Well-maintained/updated properties tend to receive offers quite quickly (within the first week). ... more

Super affordable area that many people don’t know about. Very sunny (we’re talking hot!), diverse neighborhood with many modern looking homes. If you share a flat or home with a few people, it can be pretty affordable. I had a sunny, bright room with my own mini balcony in a 3-bedroom flat. Public transportation options abound! There are also lots of eateries/convenience stores in the area. Since this area is close to the freeway and other busy streets, it might be noisy! ... more

Even though the neighborhood is mostly comprised of families and students, the socioeconomic makeup of the area makes it a little rough around the edges, and not the most desirable place for a young person who is living alone. There seems to be some minor gang activity and some drug dealing–probably due to the fact that the Bayview District, the Excelsior District and deep Mission border this area. If you are someone with an open mind and want a real city experience, then you might be fine here-I wouldn’t recommend this area to someone who is new to the city. The police do patrol the area, so it’s not totally unsafe. While there are a lot of amenities nearby on San Bruno Avenue, there isn’t a major grocery store, so you will need to plan ahead for your food shopping, especially if you don’t have a car. Streets aren’t particularly walkable due to geographical makeup of some of the streets (it’s slightly hilly) and there isn’t a lot of parking after 8 pm on most nights. ... more
