I have lived in the Mission district of San Francisco for six years and I absolutely love it. The BART train and many bus lines go through this neighborhood. You will find some of the best food in the city here, especially Mexican. There is vibrant art everywhere. Interesting shops and colorful cafes line the streets. People from all cultures intermingle. The Mission provides an eclectic mix gritty bars and clubs, from hipster to Latin to Irish to dive.

I knew from a young age that I was going to have to pay a lot of money to rent in San Francisco. It's fine and all but the place I live in, is very old and a bit outdated. I am thankful for a roof over my head!
I have great neighbors on my floor, above me not so much, and outside we see familiar faces but never introduce ourselves.
