San Francisco neighborhoods

san francisco neighborhood has a good overview of San Francisco neighborhoods, with some comment under the heading “a local’s guide.” Nice identification of SF neighborhoods, although the typography and color scheme would induce migraines. For the screenshot above I mellowed out the colors a bit.

    Looks like a cool way to quickly look at an area with a description. Not sure if its good to stereotype a whole area but if it is more objective the applications for this are great.

    that would be cool
