North Waterfront is a district positioned near the bay and stretches from North Beach to underneath the base of Telegraph Hill. Its geographical location affords the residents stunning visuals, great weather and a vibrant street scene. At the Embarcadero, tourists are joined by bicyclist, Dog walkers and families pushing strollers, roller-bladers and runners. Fishermen can be found fishing, as well as romantic couples at the Waterfront piers that run into the Bay. Levi’s Plaza Park offer lots of grassy green spaces, a gentle stream and benches for relaxing to the locals.
The residents do avoid Fisherman’s wharf in favor of pier 23 café, where bikers hangout with bankers on their outdoor patio. Fog City lies at the intersection of Battery Street and the Embarcadero is a much adored San Francisco institution serving high-class food in an original 1930s diner. For gourmet lovers, The House dishes out Asian Fusion in a cozy setting. The best place from which you can watch the fireworks on July 4th is a balcony in North Waterfront.
The district is walkable and downtown San Francisco is just a few minutes away on foot and entree to shopping in the Marina. A trip downtown through the public transportation is like taking a trip back in time, all thanks to Muni’s classic trolleys from all over the world on the F–line, a fleet of reinstated street cars that roll along Jones and Beach streets in Fisherman’s Wharf alongside the Embarcadero and up Market Street to Castro District.
