Neighborhood Description:

Russian Hill is one of those quintessential San Francisco neighborhoods that is equally loved by long time residents and first-time visitors. This is where you’ll find world-famous and frequently photographed Lombard Street, dubbed "The Crookedest Street," with its eight hairpin turns. In fact, it has several extremely picturesque staircase streets (parts of Vallejo and Green Streets, for example). And it’s the neighborhood where Armistead Maupin set his Tales of the City, forever casting a mythic glow on the charming streets and alleyways that climb this steep hill. A bit of interesting history is that the neighborhood was dubbed Russian Hill when early settlers of San Francisco discovered a cemetery that was possibly the resting place of Russian furriers from the North Bay.

The views extend from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin County. Alice Marble and Ina Coolbrith parks offer a serene spot to idle and enjoy the vistas. The Art Institute on Chestnut Street houses one of several controversial Diego Rivera murals in San Francisco. The Institute is in the Spanish Colonial style and dates back to 1926. The famed "Tales of the City" series by Armistead Maupin were inspired by Macondry Lane on Russian Hill. Area residences are some of the most interesting around and many offer amazing panoramas.

Homes are striking, and often very unique; as expected, many of them feature breathtaking views. You don’t have to live here to enjoy the vistas; several staircase climbs and strategically placed parks offer amazing opportunities to spy the Bay, downtown skyline and north to Marin County.

Upscale shops and restaurants mingle with neighborhood stalwarts offering all the expected services. Parking is notoriously difficult in the neighborhood; most homes don’t have garage parking, and the business district and San Francisco Art Institute attract more than their fair share of traffic. Fortunately, several Muni bus lines and a cable car line traverse the area.
