"Sketchy, but Near Fun Bars and a Great Climbing Gym"

I know Harrison Street because I come here to climb at the gym. The climbing gym, Mission Cliffs, is great. Nice people, no hierarchy or auro of superiority, plenty of partners available, great climbing, diverse crowd from all over the Bay Area, and a number of routes (although it can be a bit crowded. However, Touchstone, the company that owns this gym, tends to build their properties in abandoned factory and warehouse spaces. Therefore, the gyms are almost always in questionable neighborhoods.

There is some great stuff around Harrison Street, on Folsom, Mission and Valencia. But the street itself definitely has a bit of an eerie, deserted feel, save the homeless people who make this their residence. There are a few cool-looking apartment buildings in the immediate vicinity, but overall, the place feels a little sketchy, especially after 10 PM when the gym shuts down. I haven't had any problems yet, but even leaving my car sitting there is a little unsettling, and I am pretty diligent about hiding my stuff.

Given how deserted this street feels, it surprises me that parking is as challenging as it is. At least there isn't too much traffic!

"The Place I only go for the Club"

My favorite street is Harrison St in San Francisco. It has my favorite club right on the corner. It is suprisingly a quiet area even when I am arriving to the club. It's very close to the freeway and to Folsom st. which is a major street taking you all the way down to The Embarcadero.

"Noisy, lot of traffic and suits for commercial purpose of living"

Suits for commercial and business style of living. Very near to freeway which makes surroundings more noisy and more traffic. People who wants to live on a peaceful calm home with kids please stay away from this area as it more suits for business and commercial purpose.
