I first moved to this beautiful neighborhood in my 20's with my tiny children. I settled here permanently years later and have been in my current home for the last three decades. I love this neighborhood because I can walk everywhere, including Clement Street, San Francisco's "real" Chinatown, which is just two blocks away. I walk to Baker Beach and Golden Gate park, or just into the scenic Presidio, a block away. My home is home base for hordes of my kids and grandkids when they visit the city. I'm retired from my long-time profession as a real estate attorney and am now an avid traveler, a tennis aficionado (yes, I get up before dawn to watch Roger Federer when he plays in Europe) and a regular at the San Francisco Ballet. Some of my best friends over the years have been my closest neighbors.
