    More About Telegraph Hill

    On the northeast corner of San Francisco, above the North Waterfront neighborhood, you’ll find the imposing presence of Telegraph Hill, recognized across the globe for Coit Tower, a monument to firefighters that rises 210 feet above the hill.

    Telegraph Hill is bounded by an area defined by Vallejo Street on the south, Sansome on the east, Francisco to the north and Powell Street and Columbus Avenue to the west, where the neighborhood abuts the bustling and busy North Beach neighborhood. Muni bus lines are the primary public transit option in the neighborhood, although downtown is easily within walking distance (as long as you don’t mind the walk uphill when you return at the end of the day).

    The area was originally called Loma Alta (“High Hill”) by the Spaniards, followed by Goat Hill, and then arrived at its current moniker in the 1800s when a semaphore was constructed in the area to signal to the rest of the city the type of ships entering our beloved bay.

    The Filbert Steps are well-known for the gardens that meander down to Levi Plaza. Today, Telegraph Hill is also famous for its flock of wild parrots that are the topic of a 2003 book and subsequent documentary entitled The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

    Telegraph Hill homes span a variety of price points, although homes with exceptional views can easily list for millions of dollars, and there are also a variety of housing styles available in the neighborhood, from historic buildings to more recent infill projects.
