Diamond Heights doesn’t look like your typical San Francisco community. Perched above Glen Park and Noe Valley, it offers easy access to their many amenities, but maintains a small-town feel with meticulously planned developments and a suburban-style shopping center. Streets break away from the city grid, presenting spectacular views at every turn as they curve to follow the hillside neighborhood’s steep perimeter. There are parks for kids, dogs, and sports, and trails for people of all ages. Safeway, Walgreens, post office, bank, bakery, and a few restaurants share a large block, making errands a breeze, with a large parking lot as the icing on the cake.
