"Great proximity to restaurants, bars and shops"

This is a great little 3 block strip in the Marina District in San Francisco that runs from Steiner to Buchanan Streets. Mostly residential but great location to live because of the proximity to Steiner, Fillmore and Union Streets. Union Street has great shopping. Fillmore has great restaurants and bars and Steiner has cute shops too. Very leafy and pretty quiet. Cars are usually parked along one side. It doesn't get a ton of traffic.

"You can eat well in this area!"

Pixley Street runs right through the street full of bars and nightclubs that was once known as "The Bermuda Triangle." It was famously said that a single girl can walk into one of the three bars that created that triangle and never come out again. Two of those bars are still there: Pierce Street Annex and the California Cafe. Pixley is more like an alley than a street, with 2 story apartment buildings and a motel. You can eat well, between take out pizza and the bar fare plus it's just a couple blocks in either direction to some great restaurants!
