The Castro

Irish families once built proud Victorians and Edwardians. Urban flight left dilapidated ladies past their prime to be restored by a community of loving outcasts. Then it was embraced as revitalization, now it would be called gentrification. Harvey Milk once set up shop here, but the history runs far deeper than just rainbow colored sidewalks and streetlights.

    Castro Neighborhood Vibe

    The Castro has a rich history and was a predominantly working-class Irish neighborhood before being transformed by gay men in the 1970s. It was the epicenter of the gay rights revolution that began in the 1970s, led by pioneers such as Harvey Milk (a neighborhood school carries his name today). Today, the thriving commercial center of the neighborhood (radiating out a few blocks from Castro & 18th Street) is chock full of restaurants, shopping, bars, and other entertainment opportunities.

     

    Popular Castro Home Styles

    The Castro offers a diverse mix of homes, with a blend of styles and property types from large single-family Victorians and Edwardians to modern condos and tenancies-in-common (TICs). The great weather and open-minded neighbors make The Castro district a destination neighborhood, regardless of your sexuality. There is also a small percentage of unit buildings and small apartment buildings, most of which are clustered along the commercial corridors.

     

    Getting Around in The Castro

    In addition to several bus lines, the area is served by two Muni subway stations, as well as the street-level F-line with its collection of historic streetcars. It’s an easy neighborhood in which to live car-free, with pretty much everything you need right there in the ‘hood or a Muni ride away. Many homes don’t have parking, so don’t assume you’ll have a place to park if you consider a new home in the Castro.
