San Francisco Real Estate: Escrow Out Loud


#66: Name That Neighborhood

Season 3

Today on Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we continue the neighbourhood theme from last time with a game; let’s play Name That Neighborhood!

[00:21] How quickly can Britton figure out the neighborhood in question while Matt reads out descriptive sentences?

We cover: Lake Street, Nob Hill, Western Addition, Clarendon Heights, Alamo Square, Twin Peaks, Anza Vista, Hayes Valley, North Panhandle, Dolores Heights, The Mission, Dogpatch, SoMa, Westwood Highlands, Miraloma, Forest Hill - throwing in some interesting facts and musings along the way.

[07:49] How do freeways affect neighbourhoods? As the city evolves, old freeways are torn down and new ones are built up, but do they always make sense within a neighborhood?

[14:39] The gentrification issue is a contentious one and raises an interesting question: Who does a neighborhood belong to?

[22:22] There are a number of transformations planned for the city over the coming years – it will be interesting to see how these changes will further impact the city and its neighborhoods.
