"WEST PORTAL - This quiet..." Other NEIGHBORHOODS Tip by james_sinton

Other NEIGHBORHOODS, San Francisco: 21 reviews and 47 photos

WEST PORTAL - This quiet neighborhood is located on the far side of the Twin Peaks hills. So far, it's been relatively untouched by the mass gentrification of a lot of the city. The retail strip is about four or five blocks long, with a few nice restaurants, coffee shops, and other assorted stores. The neighborhood was built in tandem with the streetcar tunnel through the hills, early in the century. Today, you can take a K, L or M METRO train from Market Street to the West Portal station.
