"Great Pizza, Nice Little Homes"

Glen Park is not a neighborhood that gets a lot of ink. People don’t flock to Glen Park the way they do to a place like North Beach or the Marina. I bet even in the East Bay there are people who don’t even know that Glen Park is a neighborhood in San Francisco.

But Glen Park does have one thing going for it that deserves to get noticed: pizza!

Gialina’s is just a great little pizza place with some of the best Pizza in the City imo. The Atomica, is what this place is known for and to a lesser extent the Nettles; they are both fantastic. Don’t even bother looking up what they are, just go there, order them, and go to pizza heaven!

The rest of Diamond Street is pretty nice too. I think that Glen Park is a generally underrated neighborhood in SF. The Glen Park BART station is right there at the southern end of Diamond and then you get this stretch of Diamond that feels a lot like a Cow Hollow street with laundries, a little pub and the rest of it. (Interestingly, the pub’s name is Glen Park Station and Google Maps has confused the pub with the BART station. So don’t don’t try ordering your pint of brew while waiting for the Pittsburg/Bay Point; no matter how much you could use a stiff one to face your commute.)

This is the kind of stretch that you love to have right by your house for a Sunday morning or for a little relaxing post work detox.

As Diamond Street curls up into the hill, it becomes a pretty typical Glen Park residential street. It narrows and is fronted by tons of older walk-ups, the bay windows staring down onto the sidewalk. It is pretty dense, but very cute. Most of the homes have first floor garages which is a big plus for SF where parking is a nightmare. You also gets some views of the city to the south, lots of little homes on hills.

I took a quick look to see what these rent for and it looks like studios go for around $2000, 1 bedrooms for $2500, to give you an idea.

Overall a pretty good place to visit or live (if you can afford it).
