Five years ago, we named the seven best neighborhoods in San Francisco. Needless to say, the city has changed a wee bit since 2010. And what you consider to be the "best" neighborhood depends entirely on your top priorites, be it access to nightlife or a quiet place to roll your stroller (or dog stroller). Here are seven of our favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco for 2015.
Earlier this year, we introduced you to seven local leaders who are shaking things up in the fields of education, sustainability, and community development. Inspired by their contributions, we collaborated with the University of Oregon to launch the Vanguard Award, dedicated to shedding light on community members who are revolutionizing the status quo.
In early March, you nominated hundreds of gamechanging locals who are working to make the Bay Area a better place and deserve to win the Vanguard Award. We've narrowed down the field to seven finalists, and now it's time to determine the winner.
No startup has more potential than Bay Area youth. Which is why on Friday, March 20, investors in San Francisco's adolescents came together for the 4th Annual YMCA of San Francisco Y For Youth Luncheon, a day of celebration and fundraising for signature youth programs that improve the opportunities for children within our local community.
This weekend, get ready to run like a rock star, go dark for an hour, and rethink the tiny house.
Located on the waterfront and once home to large warehouses, canning factories, industrial buildings, shipyards, and wild fennel fields, Dogpatch has turned into a hub of local makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. Just hop on the T-Third to enjoy the assorted retail shop and restaurants, or simply enjoy soaking up some sun on the waterfront.
