To live in the Marina is to be the envy not only of many San Franciscans, but also of people from around the world who visit our city to relish the ornate beauty of the Palace of Fine Arts and views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Residents enjoy strolls along the Marina Green and Crissy Field. Single family homes, apartment buildings and flats offer a range of housing options for home seekers in this often sunny enclave. Marina Style barrel front homes and art deco style buildings are hallmarks of the area. Chestnut Street businesses will satisfy even the most avid shoppers, foodies and night owls alike. The Marina is a well-known nightlife destination for young professionals, and some of the City’s most renowned dining destinations can be found here as well. Residents enjoy spending a sunny afternoon at the Moscone Playground. Had it not been for the 1906 earthquake, this lovely neighborhood might have never been. Enterprising developers pushed rubble from the destroyed city into what was then marshland, creating a man-made foundation for building. The site was home to the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, one of the finest World’s fair ever hosted in the United States. The Palace of Fine Arts is a remnant of this seminal San Francisco event. If you visit the waterfront just east of the Yacht Club when the tide is out, you might catch a glimpse of some of that old San Francisco rubble. Adventure a bit further, and you’ll find the Wave Organ- an art installation of tubes extending out to the bay with openings to listen to the waves pulsing in and out. Note rubble from the former cemeteries of San Francisco strewn about and used to develop the site. When venturing to other parts of San Francisco, public transit is a breeze with both Muni and Golden Gate Transit serving the neighborhood. The Golden Gate Bridge and Marin County are just minutes away.
