More About Potrero Hill
Rich in history, Potrero Hill originally served as Native American hunting grounds and rich farmland.
But the late 1800s saw a wave of immigrants from Italy, Ireland and Scotland populating the land. In fact, so dense was its Celtic immigrant population that, as recently as the early 20th century, Potrero Hill was referred to as Scottish Hill.
Potrero Hill would remain home to blue collar, working-class families until the mid 1990s, when gentrification and the dot-com era made the neighborhood more attractive to the white collar professional set.
In a Few Words
Easy commute access
Thanks in part to it weekly newspaper, The Potrero View, and the century-old Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, used by residents for town meetings, recitals, and other events, Potrero Hill has a community feel all of its own.
Cafe dining is also popular with locals, and shopping and nightlife choices abound. All is within walking distance, and it’s worth the trek up and down hills to get to your favorite spot.
Homes in Potrero Hill are comprised of free-standing houses (many built in Victorian architecture), town homes, flat-style condominiums, warehouse spaces, and lofts and multi-unit buildings.
And if you’re looking for a view, Potrero Hill doesn’t disappoint: many residences enjoy outstanding city views from the 300-foot high hill.
Common wisdom says Lombard Street is the crookedest street in San Francisco, but that honor actually goes to Potrero Hill’s own Vermont Street.
Why Potrero Hill?
Perhaps due to its sunny disposition (this area of the City gets more sun than most), Potrero Hill has attracted a lively mix of professionals and artists. There’s also a high level of local pride, as evidenced in the gardens, lawns, and green spaces that neighbors and City groups alike maintain with exquisite care.
