Outer Sunset gets a bad rap for the lengthy public transportation trips (mainly light rail) to get out there and for its suburban atmosphere.
This neighborhood historically housed mainly middle-class professionals, families, and Irish Americans, but waves of immigrants have changed the demographics so that now about half of its residents are of Asian descent. Dedicated surfers and nonprofessional workers have also been pushed out here (both willingly and reluctantly) due to its relative affordability.
