Lots of new development!
The Ingleside neighborhood is located in the southwestern part of San Francisco, near City College. It is bordered by Ocean Avenue to the north, Ashton Avenue to the west, Lakeview Avenue to the south and Interstate 280 to the east. The Ingleside Library is located on Ocean Avenue at Plymouth, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit Balboa Park Station is at the edge of the neighborhood on Geneva Avenue at I-280 toward San Jose Ave. The neighborhood is served by three Muni rail lines and several bus lines. The commercial center of the neighborhood runs along Ocean Avenue, which offers a range of shopping and dining institutions. The Lakeview and Ashton Mini Park is capped by a rocky outcropping providing views of the ocean and all directions.

I’ll admit, most people don’t know where my neighborhood is. When they ask where I live, I have to explain, “up past State,” “by Daly City, kind of,” and “like Excelsior but not.” Ingleside also gets left out of San Francisco roundups that characterize parts of the city. The houses here are cheap compared to other neighborhoods, liquor stores still stock illicit gems like Four Loko, and the media generally pays attention to the crime stats here more than anything else. Initially, my move to Ingleside was one of convenience, seeing as it was a short walk to San Francisco State. But over the five years I’ve lived here, I’ve found a great community that lacks pretension in a hipster-free zone that I am proud to call my hood.
