About Eureka Valley
Eureka Valley is a residential neighborhood in the city of San Francisco. The neighborhood is affluent and is dominated by single families and the LGBT community. In fact, the rainbow flag is proudly waved throughout this neighborhood to signify the LGBT pride.
When the Eureka Valley was first developed as a residential neighborhood, it was initially intended to be a working-class neighborhood. However, the job loss in the nearby factories and the migration of LGBTs into this area completely transformed the landscape of this community by the 1960s. In fact, this district elected its first openly gay politician in San Francisco in 1977.
Aside from being known as the home of the gay rights movement in San Francisco, Eureka Valley represents the true identity of San Francisco. The central location and easy access to public transportation systems contribute to making this one of the most coveted addresses in San Francisco. It is the perfect place to live if you want to enjoy a neighborhood with a small-town feel; at the same time, you can easily access the hot-spot destinations for bars, clubs and other shopping districts.
