Potrero Hill

For decades, Potrero Hill remained one of the best-kept secrets in San Francisco. Shipyards and working docks on one side of the hill, bakeries, breweries, and warehouses on the other gave a decidedly blue collar cast to this quiet neighborhood. As South of Market was colonized by the dot com explosion, the former warehouses and factories were converted to office space and live/work lofts. San Francisco high rises sprang up along the 3rd street corridor, and suddenly Potrero Hill wa-if not in the center of things-a short commute to the action.
