"The Street Everyone Forgot"

People who know the city will tell you that the Sunset is an alphabetic grid once you get south of Lincoln, running from Irving to Wawona. Here's your chance to dazzle them.... Hugo street runs between Lincoln and Irving for a few blocks near UCSF and is the Sunset's missing H. It's almost exclusively residential, with none of the high speed traffic of Lincoln, or the heavy commerce of Irving. But, it's also located just a block off of Irving's excitement, and a block off of the southern side of Golden Gate Park. It dead ends at Arguello, practically kitty corner from Kezar Stadium (where the 49ers used to play back in the days before Candlestick) and starts at 7th Avenue. Hugo features a mixture of houses and apartments, typical of the Inner Sunset.

"Mainly residential area with a lot of charm"

Hugo Street is a very short (six blocks, to be exact) , mainly residential street sandwiched in between Lincoln and Irving. It is very charming and quiet, with not many businesses actually located ON the street -- to be precise, there are a deli/cafe and laundromat and that's it. Hugo Street's main virtue is its centrality -- it is close to everything. The UCSF MUNI stop is one block up the hill, and Lincoln is only a block away, if you're trying to drive somewhere fast. There are a few MUNI buses that run along Lincoln as well, mainly the #7 and #71. The Irving Street shopping district, which has clothing stores, restaurants, banks and cafes, is just blocks away. And it's an easy ten-minute walk from Haight Street. The apartment rentals here are extremely expensive -- about $2,500 for a 2-bedroom and up. This is probably fueled by the strong demand for student housing at UCSF.

"Intersects many other streets"

Hugo Street in an average street, but it intersects many other street on every block. Mostly, it intersects street with numbers, such as 2nd, 3rd, etc. There are mostly apartments on this street. There are also mini sized trees lining the sidewalks so it brightens up the place. The street is generally clean, there is very little, if any graffiti on the buildings. There are also many facilities nearby, there is the University of San Francisco nearby on Parnassus Street and there is also Golden Gate Park just one block above. Golden Gate park is great for picnics, a place that organizations choose for volunteer events such as marathons, etc. There are sport facilities within the park for people that like to play sports or exercise. There are also may bus stops around, overall, this place is okay.

"Small and quiet street."

Hugo Street is a small six block road. The roadway for cars is small as well, so when one is driving on Hugo Street, they should be careful, as the road cannot fit two cars (One car must drive aside as one passes by). Hugo Street is a very quiet street. As I was going down this street, I found Hugo Street to be very peaceful with the hovering trees above and the scarce amount of traveling cars down Hugo Street. Hugo Street is safe at times, but may not be due to its quietness. There is also a hospital, UCSF Medical Hospital, nearby if any emergencies occur.

"Short, flat street close to many attractions."

Hugo Street is a short street running from Arguello to 7th avenue. It has a lot of apartments and some family homes. It is right off Irving Street which is known for great food and it is also home to many bus lines. UCSF is located nearby if you ever had any emergency. Parking is hard because of the popularity of Irving Street and the nurses at the hospital. It is right off busy streets so you do get some excess noise from Irving and mostly Lincoln way. Kezar stadium and Golden Gate Park are both walking distance from anywhere on this street. I feel that this is a very convenient street to live on however I would only want to live there temporarily, not forever.
