OHHHHHH

now I get it.  The ban of nudity in San Francisco had nothing to do with people complaining about naked bodies, and everything to do with The Castro becoming a more expensive area...

It is, once again, all about money.

I was born and raised in Marin County. Hottest? Is the a euphemism for worst?

What a shiat article about a shiat part of the country.

Real estate market getting ready to heat up?  So you mean it can get even more bubble-tastic to where some gay hipster douche is willing to pay $450,000 for the same thing that can be had in Texas for $100,000?  Median price of a home is 750K in the first paragraph.  fark. That.

In a state that will tax you into oblivion, hates guns, and hates cars. (the fun kind) and as a double secret probation bonus... is over run with illegals.

Heart of the gay movement (mentioned in article) that's all well and good, but they take it to the level of shoving it down your throat, pun intended.

The grammar in that headline hurt my head.  Subby, you can expect to hear from my lawyer.

Dogpatch?  Are you friggin' kidding me?

What a hole.  Good public transit connections (particularly the CalTrain at 22nd), so that might be why it made the list. But please.

You can't walk around at night, and I'm not a small guy. Likely to get whacked in the head by some kid with a golf club for your phone and wallet. Occaisonal gunfire at night.  I had three murders on the street within a three block radius while I lived just outside Dogpatch in Potrero Hill. The building I was in was like a fortress complex - high fences topped with barbed wire, heavy thick doors sealing the entrances and garages.

And you're a freeway exit down from the actual City.  Want to go to to North Beach? $15 cab ride each way, and good luck getting a can to even come out and pick you up. Or take your chances on the Third street Muni line.

Maybe in another decade as China Basin gets built up.

The hot neighborhoods are what they always have been - Marina, Cow Hollow, North Beach (if you can live without parking). The Inner Mission or SOMA if you need to commute south (and pick your block carefully). Noe Valley if you want some peace and quiet.

And when you find all of those are too expensive, you move to the Tenderloin and tell yourself its "Lower Pac Heights"

The Castro??  Gaaaaaaayyyyyy

/Not that there is anything wrong with (that) living there

accelerus: What a shiat article about a shiat part of the country.



I'm pretty sure the people who are attracted to that area will be equally pleased with you choosing not to move there. It's okay that you're not interested.

You don't know anything about SF. Really, at all. What you have that's based on facts is outdated, and the rest is just wrong. So stop.

To get anywhere hot in San Francisco, you need to drive about an hour in any direction.  For some SF residents, I'd ask you to drive about an hour west

Scrotastic Method:

Lived there from 1991 to 2009 (with occaisonal six month or a year breaks for projects).  Lived in Potrero as recently as 2006. Return to visit every four months or so, and talk to friends there daily.

What exactly do I have that's outdated?  Have a couple of hipster bars selling PBR and cheap shots down in Dogpatch suddenly turned it around?

All the business in Dogpatch and Mission Bay, the fact that it ain't so bad if you go two blocks from the projects, the transportation options, the fact that Dogpatch is so populated and growing now that there are community associations to stop further development, the Dogpatch isn't even a top 5 dangerous neighborhood, cabs to North Beach are way more than $15, I don't know how you expected to take the T to North Beach, nobody that lives Inner Mission commutes south of the city since they all work there or in SoMA/FiDi, commuters do live in Sunset/Cole Valley/Twin Peaks/etc., Noe Valley isn't quiet it's just full of families, "Lower Pac Heights" is a mile from the TL -- maybe you were thinking Lower Nob Hill? -- and Marina/Cow Hollow/North Beach don't rate at all with the new generation in the city, those neighborhoods are only "hot" if you're still pop the collar on your polos and are driving your Dad's hand-me-down 3-series. And Tenderloin rents aren't any cheaper than anywhere else.

Is SF proper really the tech startup hub? Or is it more the South Bay? I wouldn't want to commute 50 miles everyday just to live in the city if I'm spending all my time at the startup. Unless by tech they mean internet startups only and you can work from home?

As a resident of the most hated neighborhood in the city I have to ask....why did this go green let alone make the front page?

It depends.  Most of your startups will either be in the city near the Financial District and Caltrain/BART or somewhere in the South Bay near a Caltrain stop between PA and Mountain View.  Even if you're not near work, you can just Caltrain up or down.  (If you're going more than 5 miles, Caltrain.  Traffic is disgusting.)
