About Buena Vista
The neighborhood of Buena Vista in San Francisco is surrounded by many other neighborhoods such as Haight-Ashbury and Buena Vista Park. Its homeowners association takes pride in the quiet and peaceful neighborhood that they had self-proclaimed as the best kept secret of San Francisco. It is easy to tell why, even with the low profile that this community has kept for years.
One of the reasons why it has remained relatively quiet and hidden is the fact that this neighborhood is built on a steep slope. It is hard to get to and is free from tourists and curious city dwellers. This area rises sharply once you get past Market Street. This is great news for those who live in this neighborhood, because noise is minimized where they live. Additionally, Buena Vista boasts stellar views of the city from atop the hill.
Buena Vista is one of the more desirable neighborhoods due to its views, elevation, and sense of exclusivity. With only about 8,000 people, it is expected that the number of residents in Buena Vista won’t rise anytime soon. Residents love the peaceful escape from the busy city. The abundance of natural and green areas in the neighborhood is also perfect for nature lovers and pet owners.
