Divisadero is a great neighborhood. Fantastic parks, restaurants and entertainment. Abundant transit, biking and jobs. Rich architectural, cultural and artistic flair. Divisadero is the urban heart in the center of our city.
Divisadero is vibrant despite the challenges of narrow sidewalks, hazardous crosswalks, lines of cars at gas stations, lack of plazas and limited housing. Establishments like BiRite Market, The Mill, Madrone Art Bar, Nopa, The Independent and Emporium SF flourish north of the Fell/Oak corners. In contrast, the presence of a car wash and 3 gas stations impose an auto-intensive island, cutting off the south part of Divisadero from the flow of retail, pedestrians and street life.
