Former neighborhood bad boy and longtime resident shares his NOPA/Panhandle highlights


" I've lived in the NOPA / Panhandle for over 13 years and I've seen my hood go from an underrated middle class enclave to a shining beacon of San Francisco's hopes and dreams. Once neglected Victorians have been renovated to their former glory and street violence has been replaced by strollers. The residents of the NOPA / Panhandle are active in their community and run the gamut of university students, life long residents, young families, and dreamers and visionaries.  But most importantly we like to have fun and live an epicurious lifestyle!"

"Outside of Pac-heights we have the highest concentration of Victorians in San Francisco. This building was reportedly the Russian Ambassadors house a long time ago."
