Hayes Valley

Hayes Valley was transformed into it’s current hip and happening vibe after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake with the Central Freeway was damaged and taken down permanently. What had been a neighborhood blighted by the freeway running through it became on of the the hottest hoods in San Francisco with trendy fashion boutiques, hip art galleries, high-end interior-decorating shops, destination restaurants, and hopping nightspots. One of my favorite spots here is Chez Maman which offers amazing French cuisine in a casual environment. Hayes Street is closed to cars on the weekends and becomes an outdoor dining street for all the amazing restaurants nearby. The shopping in Hayes Valley is also mazing with stores like Gimme Shoes offering great shoe options and many unique boutiques and restaurants. This is a neighborhood that you must walk around to truly experience all that it has to offer. It’s bordered by the Lower Haight, Civic Center , Alamo Square and Duboce Triangle. These are some of the most sought after neighborhoods in San Francisco and it’s very central. The residential properties in Hayes Valley vary form historic Victorian, Queen Anne and Edwardians and many large new developments with modern condos. This neighborhood has a edgy, vibrant, quick pace that is fun to visit and amazing to live in!
