Stonestown Neighborhood Vibe
San Francisco State Univesity, Stonestown Mall, and Park Merced dominate the neighborhood. It’s an interesting combination of suburban mall complex, university housing and facilities, and a large rental development with thousands of homes that is slated for a major re-development, bringing tens of thousands of new rental homes to the neighborhood. There are lots of outdoor opportunities. Ft. Funston, Lake Merced, and the Pacific Ocean are all incredibly convenient.

Getting Around in Stonestown
The K and M lines provide Muni light-rail service to the neighborhood, but because the area is on the southwest edge of town, it can take a while for Muni service to get you where you’re going. The area was developed assuming you have a car, and while you’ll probably find transit to and from the neighborhood much quicker with a car, you can certainly make it without one.
