I am a native San Franciscan and have lived in Noe Valley for 30 years. Of all neighborhoods, in the city that I've lived, I enjoy Noe Valley the most! The weather is perfect for walking and exploring the many eateries and shops.
Neighbors on my block are friendly and welcome the newcomer!

Quiet and safe neighborhood, family friendly, dog friendly, lots of good restaurants, cute shops, local small markets and corner stores, Whole Foods, close to the Mission and Castro.
I love that it's quiet, feels very safe, great food and a short walk from BART in the mission.

24th Street is amazing and full of wonderful restaurants, I definitely recommend moving to Noe Valley.
