With a walking score of 95, the neighborhood surrounding the Haight Abode is one of the most vibrant and green areas in the city. Enjoy walking to four spectacular parks and some great eateries. We sit at the intersection of three great neighborhoods: Lower Haight, Upper Haight and the Divisadero Corridor. Walk east down Haight Street, left out the front door, three blocks to enter the lower Haight. Great economical eateries and many eclectic bars characterize this active nightlife neighborhood. Walk west up Haight Street, right out the front door, to the famous Haight Ashbury district. Famed epicenter of San Francisco’s 60’s counterculture movement the area has retained its funky charm with some great shopping and eatery updates. Walk north on Divisadero and you’ll find one of San Francisco’s fastest emerging communities with popular destination restaurants and numerous cafes. Below are some of our specific recommendations.
Parking is usually available in the immediate neighborhood. Be mindful of the street sweeping signs. For two hours each week you will get ticketed for parking in a street sweeping zone. On Haight, north on Broderick and on Page parking is available without a permit. These tend to be the spots that go first.
When parallel parking on a hill be careful to turn your wheels into the curb or you may get a ticket.
Head in parking. On Waller, just south of Haight running parallel and on Baker there is head-in parking which creates plenty of spaces. Baker Street and the side of Buena Vista park are also head-in parking but with permits required for day parking.
If you park in a permit area overnight, you still have two hours from the start of the day to park for free. So you can stay in a permit zone until 10am in the morning, then move your car.
In practice, they rarely ticket for permit violations, but always ticket for street sweeping violations and often “wheel not turned in”.
