Bayview's determined community continues to spearhead neighborhood improvements. The neighborhood's locally-owned restaurants and DIY collaborative spaces forge the way when it comes to community activism–many of them support Bayview's urban gardening programs and ultra-creative endeavors. As it combats its crime rate and cleans up forlorn spaces like decommissioned Hunter's Point shipyard, it steadily sheds its air of bayside isolation. With the recent introduction of the MUNI light rail, Bayview benefits from increased accessibility and city-center connectivity.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Industry and Creativity In a San Francisco Port
[Bayview] is a bad place for travelers who'd prefer to stay on the beaten path, or who are put off by ethnic and industrial neighborhoods. Bayview is not a luxury or traditional-tourist area, but it's a great part of San Francisco to experience..."

Sporting In Bayview: Candlestick Park and Bayview Beaches
Located in the heart of the Bayview district, we are a walk from the T-line that heads downtown, and steps away from other SF MUNI lines. Within blocks of taquerias, BBQ joints, Chinese food spots, and a delicious Peruvian spot!"
Urban Gardening and Community Ecology Projects
Our neighborhood is one of the sunniest in the city, something you may come to appreciate as you see the fog enveloping other neighborhoods."
Bayview's Two Faces: Residential and Industrial
Airbnb works with local photographers to capture the spirit of neighborhoods all around the world. The photography on this page includes work by:
Marc Olivier Le Blanc
Marc Olivier Le Blanc specializes in commercial and editorial portrait photography. Although he's currently based in the vibrant Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, he returned to his native France to shoot Paris for this project through a traveler's eye. He always strives to turn both the ordinary and the unusual into something extraordinary.
Michael Blumenfeld is a commercial photographer based in San Francisco. When not shooting, he loves rooting for the Giants, haunting used-book stores, and following his appetite around the city. He's inspired each day by the energy and diversity of the Bay Area. This project for Airbnb was a great opportunity to tread both the beaten and unbeaten paths of a city he feels privileged to call home.
