Little Hollywood Neighborhood Vibe
A tiny triangular patch of land bounded to the south by the San Francisco county line and the county waste transfer station, Bayshore Boulevard to the west and the 101 freeway to the east. The neighborhood has a small park, Little Hollywood Park, but no commercial district.
The first of three Caltrain stops in San Francisco is on the southwest side of the neighborhood, making the neighborhood a convenient choice for commuters who take Caltrain on a daily basis.
Popular Little Hollywood Home Styles
The neighborhood was mostly built between 1925 and 1935 and is named for the southern California inspired home style of the neighborhood. A long-gone neighborhood marketing genius also planted the so-far unverifiable rumor that Mae West once secretly nested at Tocoloma and Blanken streets. The exceptions are some recent townhome-style condominiums at the northern tip of the neighborhood off of Lois Lane.
Getting Around in Little Hollywood
A car will get you far, but if that’s not your style you’ve still got some realistic transit options. Caltrain is an option for Silicon Valley commuters. T-Third light rail and Muni bus service along nearby Bayshore Boulevard provide additional options for San Francisco commuters.
