Living the San Francisco Dream - Issue #4

Polk Street FlowersToday’s issue of Living the San Francisco Dream  focuses on a few of the shops along the Middle and Upper Polk Street area of the city.

Here, between California and Union Streets, you’ll find a vibrant shopping area of unique, one-of-a-kind stores ranging from household and clothing shops, to art and hardware stores. (Does your hardware store host wine-and-chocolate tasting nights? Cole Hardware on Polk Street does!)

Here is where I have found my favorite florist, optometrist and yoga studio. You’ll find restaurants galore, and more than a few spots to quench your thirst!

Middle Polk Street

Housing on Polk Street itself is primarily condos, tenancy-in-common units, and apartments above retail space. However, within a block or two of Polk Street, choices widen to include single-family homes and some grand condominiums.

Blog: Blinds and Designs on Polk Street

 I invite you to come take a walk down Polk Street someday soon and explore this unique and diverse shopping neighborhood. Bring your shopping bag, gift list and an appetite!

When you're ready to find your special place in the City, I'm here to help. Soon you, too, can be Living the San Francisco Dream.

Joe, they do appreciate it, and I like writing about them. Part of sharing how we transitioned from suburbia to urban life. People interested in moving to the City want to know they will find their favorite spots as easily as we have.

Polk Street is a real neighborhood, full of one-of-a-kind shops and eateries. Fun all year round, but you should see it on Halloween or SantaCon!

Roy, Dolores would enjoy it here, and the shopkeepers would welcome her!

Joan, the various neighborhoods that make up San Francisco are part of the charm of the City - each has it's own distinctive flavor. I'm glad you enjoy these posts--I have fun writing them.
