I've lived in the western addition area for six years and I think its amazing. There are so many resources in the area. For example, there are lots of stores, restaurants, and shopping areas. Japan town is right in the center. There is also a library, public pool, public recreation center, and many family friendly parks.

I was born and raised in San Francisco so I have still how impacted we are from outside source. Sf became very congested about 2/3 years ago and I noitcw with the tech boom it has driven our rent extremely high. Happily for the Western Addition it’s not crowded although it’s real estate had an massive inflation. The area is still nice and has became very diverse. It’s an welcoming area for all people! I love it
western addition is a chic yet fun location with a beercade, concert venue, cannabis dispensary and bbq place nearby alongside other great food and drink locations. close to other popular neighborhoods and attractions, the streets of western addition are rarely empty during the day. the bread and pizza that the mill bakery churns out every day is a must.
