"Long established neighborhood in SF"
Eureka Valley goes 'way back "in the day" - long an Irish Catholic enclave, Eureka Valley has always been a place for families. Neighborhood bars, small mom-and-pop grocery stores, churches every five blocks, a funeral home - the neighborhood has everything for a family from birth through school, work, retirement and death. Over the years, of course, the neighborhood makeup has changed; but the basic "family" vibe has remained the same. Family composition may be different now - gay couples, lesbian couples, blended families or traditional families - everyone lives here. Good transportation with several buslines, a streetcar line that goes downtown, health and fitness clubs - you don't need to go anywhere else, just hang out in the neighborhood. Even Starbucks has moved in on 24th Street! Much of the fog that attempts to move in from the ocean beaches gets stopped by the hills of Twin Peaks and Diamond Heights, leaving sunshine in Eureka Valley and southeast San Francisco. A great place to raise a family, enjoying the convenience of being in The City without sacrificing a feeling of "home!"
