While a quieter neighborhood overall, it is also home to two punk/indie music venues and the California College of the Arts, which draws students and gives it fuller range of residents. It’s also a relatively racially diverse neighborhood.
The neighborhood vibe changes from north to south, going from a lot of lofts and workspaces for fledgling startups to condos and a mix of Victorians and small homes heading up the hill. Some anonymous and newer “affordable” housing projects can be found on the southern side of the hill. The north side is also seeing some larger apartment complexes being built to accommodate the interests of startup workers.
