Neighborhood Gallery

525 10th Avenue


by Cynthia Cummins

Part of an area once known as the “Outside Lands,” the Inner Richmond district today is one of the most vibrant and livable neighborhoods in San Francisco.  In fact, if it weren’t so attractive it might be called a “best kept secret” – sitting quietly next door to upscale Presidio Heights and trendy NOPA.

Before 1900, the Inner Richmond was located at the far edge of the city in a location where few folks lived or traveled:  an excellent location for farms, cemeteries, amusement parks and other non-residential uses.  With the advent of the automobile and construction of reliable roadways, the Inner Richmond rapidly developed into a popular place to live, conveniently located just north of San Francisco’s newly established urban playground, Golden Gate Park.

Today the neighborhood offers some of the best city living imaginable, with a friendly and diverse population, historically significant architecture, terrific public transportation, fabulous civic venues, attractive parks, bustling shopping streets, and an enviable safety record.

Because it was the first to be “built out,” the Inner Richmond has more Victorian housing stock than areas further west, though there are homes, condos and apartments dating from every decade of the 20th and 21st centuries.   Despite reports of cool and foggy weather, thriving gardens abound, especially since lot sizes are larger than in many parts of the city.  There are ample opportunities for recreation and entertainment throughout the area.  And because the neighborhood has been settled over the years by a diverse population, the variety and quantity of restaurant and shopping choices is astounding.  Most of us who reside here would never consider living anywhere else in San Francisco!

Here's a partial list of inner Richmond destinations. Note some may be temporarily closed or closed due to covid.
