Live

This urban village is a trendy array of mall markets, cafes, fruit stands and barber shops, while the residential streets are a cluster of bungalows, boxy single family homes, and small apartment buildings. Affectionately known as “Maternal Heights,” Bernal appeals to families with its quiet streets and calm atmosphere. The weather is on the cooler side and great for fog lovers, with some sunshine. Community gardens throughout Bernal symbolize a culture of togetherness and cooperation.

Commute

Borders the busy Mission neighborhood and maintains some seclusion due to less accommodating public transportation. On the bright side, parking can be a little easier here than other parts of SF, and its close proximity to the 101 freeway makes it ideal for commuters to Silicon Valley.
