Artist’s Colony & Gardening Mecca
Bayview, just south of Islais Creek, is a community intent on reinventing itself as an artist’s colony and gardening mecca. Both the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists Open Studio and Flora Grubb Gardens are cases in point. Three-quarters of the residents are loyal homeowners, many of whom have developed the Quesada Garden Initiative. This community-building effort started with a few neighbors beautifying Quesada Avenue and has blossomed into an award-winning project and serves as a model for communities across the nation. Properties are still affordable and comprised primarily of single-family residences. Architecture is a smorgasbord with some renovated projects, colorful stucco homes and Victorians.
Dining, Retail & Entertainment Destinations
The neighborhood takes pride in its public and backyard gardens, and the San Francisco Produce Market provides local produce to many of San Francisco’s finest restaurants.
