Hayes Valley’s character stems
from its unique history.

A NEIGHBORHOOD WITH PERSONALITY

When the freeway came down in 1992, a rare opportunity for forging a new kind of neighborhood materialized. Where on-ramps once were, a tree-lined community park—Hayes Green—was inaugurated, and progressive eateries, chic galleries, hip boutiques, wine merchants, and brasserie-bars moved in.

With a ban on business chains, Hayes Valley is poised to attract and engender more purveyors of made-and-crafted food and goods that will keep the neighborhood at the forefront of everything that’s great about San Francisco.
