Pacific Heights, San Francisco

Pacific Heights is an affluent neighborhood of San Francisco, California, which is known for the notable people who reside in the area. It is located in one of the most scenic and park-like settings in northern California, offering panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay, the Palace of Fine Arts, Alcatraz, and the Presidio. Its location provides a temperate micro-climate that is clearer, but not always warmer, than many other areas in San Francisco.The Pacific Heights Residents Association defines the neighborhood as stretching from Union Street to Bush Street in the north–south direction and from Van Ness Avenue to Presidio Avenue in the east-west direction. As of 2017, Google Maps delineates its north–south extension more narrowly as reaching from Green Street to California Street.In 2013, Pacific Heights was named most expensive neighborhood in United States stating that if San Francisco's Pacific Heights had its own zip code, it would be the most expensive place to live in the United States. The 94115 zip code includes both Pacific Heights' "Gold Coast", an area famous for its billionaire residents and record-breaking prices, and "The Western Addition", an area about 20 blocks away where real estate prices are significantly lower. In 2017, Curbed SF again announced the "occasionally chic, hardly affordable, always elite Pacific Heights" as San Francisco's most expensive neighborhood.

  • This is where the rich have always lived, now the super-rich. Some lovely architecture here, but not much life.  more »
  • Not exactly the area of the hippies (that's the "Haight st") as a nice residential neighborhood that offers a pleasant viewing on dream homes ... but it could not be otherwise since it is considered one of the richest neighborhoods in the city. and it shows ... Certainly worth doing at least one step, right to dream or "dig" a bit.
