Neighborhood Spotlight - Noe Valley


Noe Valley is my favorite neighborhood in SF, although, I may be biased as I also call it home! The neighborhood is named after José de Jesús Noé, who owned what is now Noe Valley as part of his Rancho San Miguel. Noé later sold to John Horner, who named most of Noe’s streets. Elizabeth St. was named after John’s wife and Jersey St. after his home state.

The weather is warm and sunny, thanks to its fog blocker, Twin Peaks. You will find the highest concentration of row house in the city here and as it has thrived you will note a gorgeous blend of old and new homes throughout. 24th & Church Street shopping and commercial districts offer residents a variety of shops, restaurants and services. The Town Square is currently under construction and will host festivals and the Saturday Farmer’s Market. The J Train makes getting around easy and shuttle buses offer convenience to workers in different parts of the Bay.

The proximity to the FWY has made it an increasingly popular place to call home to those working in the Silicon Valley. Notably, St. Paul’s Church was the setting for the Sister Act movie. Carlos Santana & Benjamin Bratt attended James Lick Middle School. La Ciccia, one of the City’s Top 100 Restaurants and Mark Zuckerberg also call Noe Valley home! If you are wondering where to live in SF, you can’t go wrong in Noe Valley!
