District 2: Central West


The Central West begins at the beaches and ends at Golden Gate Heights. There is less pricing diversity in this district, and generally, the least expensive homes are located at the coast and the more expensive ones are inland, especially if coupled with commanding views. Neighborhood shopping occurs in multiple clusters along Irving Street , Noriega Street, and Taravel Street.
