The style of homes in Chinatown run the gamut, making it easier for any buyer to find what they're looking for.
Where to Live
Tall buildings full of small apartments are prevalent throughout Chinatown. There are two main thoroughfares, Grant and Stockton Streets, which feature constant daytime and evening foot traffic. The southern and eastern sides of the neighborhood are closer to business offices in the Financial District. Apartment buildings on Broadway, near the northern border, are close to grocery stores.
Where to Eat
Chinatown is extremely dense with restaurants. Most famous for its many dim sum spots, the neighborhood also offers choices of many different Chinese and Chinese-American cuisines, Vietnamese food, and a selection of coffee and donut shops. It's also a short walk to a section of Kearny Street nicknamed The Lunchbox, where Thai food, sushi, pub grub, sandwiches, and more are available for lunch.
What You'll See
Watch tourists take pictures near the Dragon's Gate on Grant and Bush. Hear musicians playing Chinese string instruments on street corners. Old men playing board games in Portsmouth Square as well as working professionals packing into Mandarin restaurants for lunch are regular scenes. The owners of souvenir shops and art galleries flag down prospective customers on Grant Avenue. Martial artists and parade marchers practice in narrow alleys. You'll also see children play on a playground outside of a church.
Friday Night Fun
Most of Chinatown's restaurants aren't open past 10:00 p.m., so have an early dim sum dinner on Jackson Street before going to one of the low-key cocktail lounges on Grant Avenue. Stop in at the former Beat poet hangouts on Columbus Avenue, the border of Chinatown and North Beach.
The Perfect Sunday
Chinatown is up a hill from downtown, so take advantage of the big city views from the neighborhood's parks and from the top of the Stockton Street Tunnel. Read a book or play checkers in Portsmouth Square. Peruse the art galleries on Grant Avenue and see if you can find any identical pieces.
Easy commute to downtown • Lots of schools • Plenty of shopping options.
Locals Don't Love
