Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day, I’m about to walk out the door for Tuesday broker’s tour, but wanted to get some photos posted before I start touring for the day.

I took advantage of a “quiet” Memorial Day weekend to take a nice photo walk in Cole Valley. After I finished documenting the N-Judah N-Pocalypse, I headed south on Cole street, walking up to Tank Hill, back along the south-most streets of Cole Valley, and then along Stanyan north towards Golden Gate Park.
I wasn’t out to photograph any particular home, just to capture a bunch of pictures that “felt like” Cole Valley to me. The beautiful weather certainly helped get some great perspective shots from up on Tank Hill.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of Cole Valley homes and the neighborhood in general. Of course, I like a lot of San Francisco neighborhoods (for a variety of reasons), so please don’t think that Cole Valley is the only cool and awesome place to live in San Francisco. We’ve got plenty of awesome neighborhoods, depending on what you are looking for.
As you’ll see in the pics, Cole Valley is home to one of the skinniest homes in San Francisco, but also some very stately homes with grand proportions and scale. It is also an interesting mix of “classic” homes mixed in with some incredibly sleek and modern homes. And like any great San Francisco neighborhood, it is incredibly walkable with some wonderful shops and businesses on Cole Street, and convenient access to transit and the N-Judah.
I really enjoyed this neighborhood photo walk, any suggestions for which neighborhood I should
stalk, er document, next? Leave your suggestions in the comments, and I hope everyone adjusts to being back at work after the 3 day weekend!
