District 6, also known as the Central North District, was once referred to as the Western Addition due to its development immediately west of downtown San Francisco. Having some of the hottest and most popular neighborhoods in the city and easy access to public transportation, District 6 is a fun area to live and explore, attracting both tourists and locals.
As one of the few to survive San Francisco’s devastating 1906 earthquake, the architecture in this district is relatively untouched by time, and offers some of the city’s finest original Victorian houses. The famous “Painted Ladies,” six gorgeous Victorian homes are here, over the edge of Alamo Square Park, featuring some of the best views of downtown San Francisco and beyond.
In contrast, Hayes Valley is a vibrant revitalized neighborhood full of trendy boutiques, popular restaurants, and one of the city’s highest concentrations of condominiums. Lower Pacific Heights offers similarity to Pacific Heights at a slightly more affordable price, and homes in Anza Vista are symbolic for the simple, Bauhaus style.
