Where is Cathedral Hill?

 

cathedral-hill-visualized_660_01

"This is a very awesome place to live. Excellent views! "

"If I find myself becoming overwhelmed by the city's constant activity, I hike up the hill to the cathedral. "

This elegantly-designed SF Eichler complex in Cathedral Hill is one of the few successful redevelopment projects that city planned for the Western Addition neighborhood in the early 60s. Residents love living in this unique neighborhood where you can walk to supermarket (ex> Safeway at the corner of Geary and Fillmore), Japan Town where city's best Asian restaurants are packed, and jazz street of Fillmore.

The Fillmore and Yoshi's

2646628929_5bba9f8a4c_500

 

The Fillmore is the SF neighborhood richest in music history, with many Jazz venues still remain in the Western Addition including Yoshi's -perhaps the most famous jazz club in all of SF with its uniquely Western Addition mix of sushi and jazz. Furthermore the annual Fillmore Jazz Festival, held every summer on Fillmore Street between Jackson and Eddy, is the largest free jazz festival on the west coast and one of the awaited events for most of San Franciscans.
