As a nature-lover’s alternative to the urban landscape of the city, Parkside is nearer to the beach than it is to downtown’s bustling plazas. Low-key restaurants line Parkside’s undulating streets, and the community is a simple mix of laid-back residents. This neighborhood’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean creates a constant blanket of fog and lends it an air of misty surrealism. Although Parkside keeps to itself, night owls can take MUNI for livelier after-hours amusement.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

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.
