For the year i have lived here while attending sfsu, there is only one type of people who live around here which are old asian people. Nothing wrong but the bus commute are also filled with them and almost impossible to even get on the bus because it is so packed. Also at night it gets creepy because there is little to no lights. Its also not the cleanest area, everything looks aged.

Lived in the sunset most of my life. Mini is convenient and lotsa stores on Taraval, Noriega and Irving Street. Ocean beach and Stonestown mall nearby. Cons are high housing prices and lack of parking. All of my friends grew up in the Sunset have moved away because housing is sky high.
The Inner Sunset is a very safe, residential neighborhood with many restaurants. One of the only downsides is that it can be quite foggy.
