North Beach Neighborhood Basics
North Beach is one of San Francisco’s quintessential neighborhoods. Home to some of San Francisco’s earliest history and San Francisco legends like Joe Dimaggio. Washington Square, at Stockton/Filbert/Columbus is the heart of the neighborhood and a very popular destination for both locals and tourists.
Housing Style and Stock
North Beach is not a neighborhood you should be looking in if you expect to find a single family home. While not particularly tall (height limits are usually around 40′), most buildings are multi-unit buildings, either condos, apartment buildings converted to TICs, or stock co-ops. Single family homes exist in the neighborhood, but they are rare. As this was one of San Francisco’s earlier neighborhoods, you’ll find a lot of Victorian and Edwardian homes. Depending on their location, some of the homes have dramatic downtown or San Francisco Bay views.
Super High. There are numerous corner cafes and boutiques scattered throughout the neighborhood. You can get around North Beach easily without a car. And while you’re out and about enjoying the neighborhood, be prepared to see plenty of tourists lugging their cameras about. North Beach is considered by many tourists to be a “must visit” neighborhood.
North Beach homes are served by plenty of bus lines. There has been talk of extending the central subway north from Chinatown into North Beach at some point in the future, but neighborhood opposition at this time makes it unlikely. Cable cars also cross the neighborhood, but given their popularity with visitors, they don’t necessarily make the best transit choice for a daily commute.
