Known for its good weather, hills, and stunning views, Potrero Hill is a very popular residential neighborhood. A unique enclave of Victorians, mixed with new development lofts and condominiums, Potrero Hill defies San Francisco stereotypes.

The Neighborhood

Hugging the curves of the city’s eastern hills, Potrero Hill residents like to think of their neighborhood as a “small village on a hill.” Many people choose to live in Potrero Hill for the sense of neighborhood, the everyone-knows-someone vibe.

What To Expect

Potrero Hill is especially appealing to young couples who work downtown. Every street seems to have a convenient corner market. Separated from the rest of the city by highways on the east and west and warehouses to the north and south, Potrero Hill feels as if it were its own little town. The 360-degree views, quiet lifestyle, and diverse architecture make Potrero Hill an increasingly desirable area to call home.


Potrero Hill may be laid back, but there’s plenty to do without needing to leave. The neighborhood has a quietly vibrant art scene, with indie performance venues, galleries, and live local music. Farley’s coffee house, aka Community in a Cup, hosts a number of neighborhood events, including an Annual Pet Parade
