It's very quiet and peaceful around this neighborhood. It has a popular tourist attraction located on a hill and there is a muni bus whose route is specially designed for visits to that very spot. It is home to a lot of Italian restaurants and is located next to another popular tourist, Chinatown.

Many people are seen frequently running on the sidewalks or coming back from the gym. Physical health isn't a big issue for most. Drugs, such as marijuana, and tobacco, are often smelled from a distance. It is prevalent near residential areas, but not much anywhere else.
There's a good variety of stores, from grocery stores such as Safeway and Trader Joe's, to local businesses. It is also very close-by Fisherman's Wharf and and many seafood places.
