"Diversity in the Excelsior...."
The Excelsior District is one of continuing diversity - from 'way back in the 50s and 60s until now. Streets are named for international cities: London, Paris, Madrid, Edinburgh, Naples, Vienna. Others are named for countries: Persia, Brazil, France, Italy, Russia. Edinburgh Street is about halfway up the hill from Mission Street. It is quiet, with large and small homes, with a good mix of folks who have been here for years along with families just starting out. We've lost the little mom-and-pop groceries that used to exist up here on the hill, but we still have a neighborhood busline that will bring you up from Mission.
