San Francisco Richmond ReView
The Richmond District is located in the northwest corner of San Francisco, nestled in between Presidio National Park and the city’s Golden Gate Park. The neighborhood, which includes Sea Cliff and Laurel and Presidio Heights, is home to about 80,000 people. About half of Richmond residents are of Asian ancestry, primarily of Chinese and Korean descent. There is also a large Irish population and many recently arrived Russian immigrants.
Several vibrant commercial areas, including California Street, Clement Street and Geary Boulevard, serve the neighborhood. The 1,400 merchants and small offices in the Richmond District offer a wide range of goods and services.
Local landmarks include the Cliff House and the Beach Chalet at Ocean Beach, the V.A. Hospital at Fort Miley, University of San Francisco and numerous holy houses, including Temple Emanuel, St. John’s Orthodox Church and St. John’s Presbyterian Church. There are numerous attractions in Golden Gate Park, including an American Bison pen, M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, California Academy of Sciences, Strybing Arboretum, the oldest children’s playground west of the Mississippi River and a 9-hole golf course.

Unseen, lurking in the shadows, she attached herself to the metal handrail. She knew that it would be only a matter of time until some careless fool would lean against the spot where she had been.
The internet was supposed to connect us. Instead, it has separated us into ever-smaller tribes.
I read with interest a recent letter from Dodie Sutro Crawford on the District 1 candidate forums hosted by SOAR. I’ve been pleased to have the opportunity to speak to SOAR and their members at three Facebook forums over the last several weeks. A fourth forum was initially scheduled for June 30 and I confirmed my participation.
My name is Peta, I was born and raised in the Richmond District, a proud GWHS class of 2001 graduate. I grew up reading the Richmond Review.
