Not always sunny, shameless neighborhood self-promotion aside. Within walking distance to Glen Park BART, mostly single-family homes, bisected by Monterey Ave. Above, Sunnyside on a hill with some great southern views. Below, the Sunnyside flatlands bounded by I-280 and City College to the south.

Sunnyside Neighborhood Vibe

Sunnyside is predominantly residential, with a low-key commercial corridor along Monterey Avenue. There’s a Safeway, several mom-and-pop restaurants and shops, and the obligatory neighborhood bar or two.


Popular Sunnyside Home Styles

Housing in Sunnyside is almost exclusively single family homes. Lot sizes are usually 25′ wide, although there are exceptions. Homes on the northern side of Sunnyside (north of Monterey) are on a hill, and many of them have lovely views to the Southern Hills, while some even have a bit of a San Francisco Bay view. There are some smaller condo buildings sprinkled throughout the neighborhood as well.


Getting Around in The Sunnyside

The neighborhood is served by several bus lines. Homes on the easternmost side of the neighborhood have the easiest access to BART — just a short walk from the Glen Park BART station. Homes near City College are somewhat close to the Balboa Park BART station, but it will be a good walk. Access to I-280 for South Bay commuters is excellent.

More About the Sunnyside

The Sunnyside neighborhood is bordered by Teresita to the north, I-280 to the east, Ocean Ave to the south and Phelan/Ridgewood along the western side of the neighborhood. San Francisco City College occupies the southwestern-most part of the neighborhood. The eastern part of the neighborhood feels like it has more in common with Glen Park, and while the neighborhood may be named Sunnyside, it’s an aspirational name: the neighborhood has an average to above-average number of foggy days.
