Perched on one of San Francisco’s highest hilltops and among its most intimate lanes, Russian Hill is a quiet yet sophisticated neighborhood, with an agglomeration of some of the city’s first (and, to this day, finest) high-rise apartment buildings. Unrivaled views of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz, Angel Island and Marin County abound. An upper-crust pedigree has endured here for more than 100 years -- historic San Francisco traces many of its leading figures to this neighborhood. Channeling the city’s storied past, sidewalks are replaced by hidden stairways, picturesque parks lace the area, and the residents ride the city’s iconic cable cars. Charming restaurants and small businesses cluster on leafy Hyde Street, and Polk Street is crowded with local-favorite watering holes and unusual boutiques. With its geography, history, architecture and views, Russian Hill is the quintessential San Francisco neighborhood.
