Below is some general information about Pacific Heights:
Pacific Heights is a neighborhood of San Francisco, California, US, which is known for the notable people who reside in the area. It is located in one of the most scenic and park-like settings in Northern California, offering panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay, the Palace of Fine Arts, Alcatraz and the Presidio. Its location provides a temperate micro-climate that is clearer, but not always warmer, than many other areas in San Francisco. The Pacific Heights Residents Association defines the neighborhood as inside Bush Street, Presidio Avenue, Union Street, and Van Ness Avenue.
Pacific Heights is situated on a primarily east-west oriented ridge that rises sharply from the Marina District and Cow Hollow neighborhoods, to the north, to a maximum height of 370 feet (110 miles) above sea level. Pacific Heights features two parks, Lafayette and Alta Plaza. Visible to the north are the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, and Alcatraz Island. Lower Pacific Heights refers to the area located south of California Street down to Post Street. Though previously simply considered part of the Western Addition, this new neighborhood designation became popularized by real estate agents in the early 1990s.
The neighborhood was first developed in the 1870s, with small Victorian homes built. Starting around the start of the 20th century, and especially after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, many were replaced with period homes. Still residential, the area is characterized by painted Victorian style architecture.
The oldest building in Pacific Heights, located at 2475 Pacific Avenue, was built in 1853, though the majority of the neighborhood was built after the 1906 earthquake. The architecture of the neighborhood is varied; Victorian, Mission Revival, Edwardian, and Chateau styles are common. Several countries have consulates in Pacific Heights. They include Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Russia, South Korea, and Vietnam.
Most of the neighborhood’s boutiques and restaurants can be found along Fillmore Street, south of Pacific Avenue. They include stores like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Athleta and Prana. Other businesses in Pacific Heights are located on California and Divisadero Streets, as well as on Van Ness Avenue. Pacific Heights is home to several schools, including the San Francisco University High School; Drew School (formerly Drew College Preparatory School); The Hamlin School; Convent of the Sacred Heart High School; Stuart Hall High School and Town School for Boys, among others. Universities and colleges include Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, part of the University of the Pacific, and the Academy of Art University.
