According to the planning department: this neighborhood is the Buena Vista North Historic District. It consists primarily of two- and three-story residential buildings that were constructed during the late 19th and early 20th century. The area exhibits a predominant "Victorian-era" and "Edwardian-era" architectural character, and includes styles such as Italianate, Stick-Eastlake, Queen Anne, Craftsman, and Edwardian. Buena Vista Park was established in 1867 when San Francisco’s Committee on Outside Lands reserved the 36-acre, steeply sloped hill as the first official park in the City’ system. As soon as Golden Gate Park was established, the City began planning the area around the park. By 1915, the district was nearly 100% built out.
NOPA and Haight Ashbury are the bordering neighborhoods. The North of Panhandle area, or Nopa, is rapidly becoming one of the city's most in-demand neighborhoods. Situated just north of Golden Gate Park's Panhandle, and abutted by the Divisadero corridor, you'll always feel there's something to do, and within walking distance! Here you'll feel central to everything, with easy freeway access via Fell and Oak streets, several Muni lines at your doorstep, and very easily navigable bicycle routes. And yet, the nearby green spaces imbue the entire area with a low key, peaceful air. Services and entertainment are easily accessed, making car-free living a very appealing lifestyle choice. In addition to Divisadero's many trendy cafes, clubs and shops, you can do your grocery shopping at the Lucky Center on Fulton, and hit up Broderick Place for speciality deli goods. Homes near the Panhandle are exceptionally desirable. There are also multi-unit apartment buildings and condos for the investment buyer. It's also a great spot to bike, shoot hoops or just chill out by the bandstand. Young professionals and students, families, and long-time residents fill up Nopa's many Victorian and Edwardian single family homes and multi-unit buildings. There are plenty of opportunities to meet your neighbors, be it at Sunday's Divisadero Farmer's Market or the bi-monthly Divisadero Art Walk. The North of Panhandle Neighborhood Association does a wonderful job of organizing events and keeping everyone informed of neighborhood news. The neighborhood even has its own parents' group.
Haight Ashbury is one of the most famous intersections in America. When the hubbub of Haight Street proves too much, Golden Gate Park, with its new world-class museums, the DeYoung and the California Academy of Sciences, offer a calm oasis. Renovation of the neighborhood Victorians continues apace. Converted to apartments in the 60s these homes are being rediscovered by families who take them on as hobby, pastime, passion, and investment. For families with young kids, the Haight Ashbury Coop Nursery School, now in its third decade, provides an inexpensive alternative to day care from its home in the Alma Street playground.
