The Bayview/Candlestick area consists of twelve neighborhoods: Bayview, Crocker Amazon, Excelsior, Outer Mission, Visitacion Valley, Portola, Silver Terrace, Mission Terrace, Hunters Point, Bayview Heights, Candlestick Point, Little Hollywood.
Bayview with its mixture of new and old homes is positioned along the shoreline and blessed with multiple green spaces such as the Adam Rogers Park with its playgrounds, basketball court and great views of the surroundings.
Bayview was once home to the city’s naval industry, but fell into disuse after many local businesses closed. The area is currently highlighted as one of the city’s up and coming neighbourhoods for revitalization. Not to wait, a diverse range of creative people such as crafters, musicians, painters, and writers have settled down to create a stand out community in the neighborhood.
Locals with a love for urban gardening have come together to create the award-winning Quesada Gardens Initiative which has become a model for urban gardening throughout the nation. With only a handful of Bayview residents in 2002, locals invested heart and soul into the project, proving that it is possible to positively impact the local environment and empower others through a sustainable community.
As a result, other creative projects have emerged, such as a growing independent art community and independent restaurant businesses, (try the renown Auntie April’s!). Overall, the Bayview community is a dynamic mix of ethnicities, artists and crafters from all fields with the deep care for their environment and community.
Crocker Amazon is an often overlooked neighborhood in San Francisco but with plenty to offer. Along its great, green and windy streets are Victorian and Edwardian style single-family homes and mid-century row houses. Lawns are generally manicured and neat, with an unusual 10 feet between neighbors, providing a unique sense of space.

Much has changed with time and this neighbourhood has now grown into a vibrant and ethnically diverse community thoroughly loved by families that enjoys a range of cultural activities.

Little Hollywood, named after the many silent film stars who once lived here (Mae West being one of the area’s more famous residents), is a breathing space from the area’s faster-paced surroundings.
Due to being still a rather unknown part of the city and just a single square mile in size, it has developed a strong neighborhood vibe where the area’s 1000 residents enjoy a strong community.
It was in the 1920’s and 30’s that the architectural movement shaped this neighborhood with houses and apartment complexes in the north and mission-style townhouses to the south. Although small in size Little Hollywood with its less fast-paced vibe is an affordable neighborhood for families and new home buyers.
