Many assume when moving to an urban city that they have to sacrifice green spaces and parks for city living. Fortunately, that’s far from the truth when living in San Francisco.
San Francisco is the first and only city where 100% of its residents are within ten minutes or less walking distance to a neighborhood park, according to The Trust For Public Land — a non-profit dedicated to creating public parks.
One of the best parts of living in San Francisco is the iconic charm of its historical buildings. However, that same iconic charm presents some unique design challenges. Fortunately, you no longer have to sacrifice style for size with these savvy, multi-use furniture pieces.
Living in San Francisco means learning how to maximize available living space. But sometimes, no matter how hard San Franciscans try, things don’t quite feel right. Luckily, one San Francisco retailer knows how to diagnose – then remedy – those problems.
In a city like San Francisco that is constantly evolving, there is a sense of comfort in finding an apartment home like 1560 Sacramento with a built-in community of connected residents whose manager, Paul Arruabarrena, has been an institution for over 60 years. Born on the 3rd floor of this lovingly-restored 1933 building called The Claire, Paul became resident manager in 1976, and is now, with the aid of his trusted cat Joey, the beloved patriarch of the 43-unit community in Nob Hill.
San Francisco’s Tenderloin is a study in contrasts. It is both a state-recognized historic district with a grade school, parks, and great housing and a designated high crime area, home to a melting-pot mix of people from all walks of life. Everyday joys such as the Christmas holidays can get lost in the shuffle, but a Veritas resident manager there had a ‘gift idea’ that’s indicative of his care and concern for people, not just buildings.
