The Neighborhood

Situated between the Castro and Cole Valley, my neighborhood is close enough and to see and do everything, well-connected by public transportation get a comfortable distance from the hurly-burly to offer some quiet streets.

The Castro’s vibrant culture and colorful streetscapes have long been a source of San Francisco PRIDE. Buzzing with life and activity, the Castro’s flamboyant bars and restaurants, glittering shops, and historical theaters comprise its endearingly unapologetic attitude. Although this neighborhood is considered San Francisco’s gay-friendly epicenter, all are invited to experience the Castro’s unabashed zest for life.

Strolling Cole Valley’s tree-lined streets often leads to a postcard-worthy afternoon. It's easy to spend a day admiring this idyllic neighborhood’s Victorian architecture and snacking at its cozy cafes and charming restaurants. Cole Valley’s proximity to Golden Gate Park and Haight-Ashbury promises countless options for wholesome fun and eclectic entertainment.

Getting Around

Location and access to public transport are very important; there are two bus lines right on the corner, going downhill the 33 takes you to the vibrant Castro, the Mission district, Bart, and Portrero hill. Going the other way it takes you to the Haight (old hippy hangout), Golden Gate park and the Richmond district. The 37 bus downhill takes you to the Muni underground at Castro and Mission, the Castro, the Safeway on Church then back to the Haight.

Other Things to Note

There is no parking provided. However, street parking is easy to find and free in our neighborhood, you can almost always find a spot within one or two blocks of the building. In most parts of the city, you must have a sticker to park more than a few hours. Here you don't need a sticker and you can park your car and leave it, the only restriction is it must be moved every three days and for street cleaning two hours per week. Signs are clearly posted telling you the times for street cleaning. Other things to remember about parking in San Francisco, never block a driveway or you will be ticketed or towed and remember if you are parking on a hill you must turn your wheels all the way to the left if you are pointing uphill or all the way to the right if you are pointing downhill.

There is one flight of stairs to get to the apartment.
