Local Reviews

There is a real sense of community. There are many good restaurants and shops. There is a Tenderloin museum. My favorite bar is in this neighborhood.

My neighborhood is not that unique it's the neighbors that I have. We look out for each other other. There are no hang out spots but we do have cookouts when the weather permits

I can walk to a movie theatre, gym, or grocery store. I love all the boba places in the area. My family and I enjoy eating at super hot Hotpot.

Gated community. Security camera is high tech. On call security guards.well lite fixture streets at nite.

Close to the opera. Close to the symphony, within one block. Close to theaters within 3 blocks. Close to restaurants within 3 blocks.

I think the most unique thing about the community is its security system. There are community security officers patrolling the streets at all times, no matter how late they come home
