"There is a Doctor in the House"

Broderick Street in the Anza Vista neighborhood of San Francisco is best known for the Kaiser buildings that bookmark it on both sides. In fact, one of the tall Kaiser facilities interrupts Broderick at about the level of Geary.

Most of the rest of Broderick, however, is a largely residential street perfectly situated for doctors and nurses. You get a number of attractive 3-story Victorians along the street which, not surprising sell for some of the highest prices in all of Anza Vista, small as it is. Actually, the highest priced home sale in Anza Vista was here. A two-story Pink Lady with a drive down sub street level garage sold for $1.4 mil in the last quarter of 2012. (Rents are very high in Anza Vista and the surrounding areas as well, with the average 1 and 2 bedroom running around $3500/month.)

Though many of the buildings here date from the first quarter of the 20th Century, there are some newer, unusual looking buildings. One particularly unusual one, has garages on street level and then high second floors.

The barred doors and windows on street level are clues to the crime worries in the area given its proximity to the crime ridden Tenderloin. Although there is a moderate level of crime in the area, however most of Broderick and Anza Vista are spared the worst of it. There were only about three dozen burglaries and robberies and a handful of assaults in the vicinity of Broderick in the last six months. (Very moderate for the city and a world away from the level of crime just to east of here.)

Schools in the Anza Vista area are a bit of a mixed bag with those on the northern end being strong and those on the southern end weak.

Overall, a pretty nice spot if you happen to be a doctor or have the salary of one.
  • Close to the Hospital
  • Nice Older Victorians
  • Right in the Middle of the Action
  • Very, Very Expensive
  • Some Crime
  • Terrible Parking
