There are 2 commercial centers in this popular neighborhood of elegant Victorian homes and flats. The better known is the Haight district, where people can wander and enjoy the vintage clothing stores and good restaurants.
People that are looking for a little quieter neighborhood might enjoy the Cole Valley neighborhood. It has small grocery stores, a health club, a hardware store, and coffee shops. The area’s central location provides reasonable freeway access and excellent public transit via the N Judah rail.
The closer you are to Haight Street, the less expensive the housing. Condominium and apartments can be found just above and below Haight along Page and Waller. Once you get above Frederick Street, your options widen with more single-family homes. Cole Valley is where you can find a quintessential San Francisco Victorian home.
