The Richmond district of San Francisco is not considered as avant garde as many of the city’s better known districts. It’s more of a residential area providing Richmond apartments for rent and homes in an area with charm and the distinctive San Francisco appeal.
You’ll find an eclectic mix of historic, turn of the century Edwardian homes within the same neighborhood as modern Richmond apartments for rent. It’s also not unusual to see a few of the last remaining earthquake cabins which date all the way back to 1906 scattered alongside homes and Richmond apartments for rent.
The Richmond district is a collage of different cultures. Take a stroll down any street and it’s not unusual to see a Russian Orthodox cathedral, a Japanese food market and Mexican produce stands as evidence of the many cultures that now call the Richmond home.
Clement Street is the district’s own version of Chinatown where residents and visitors will find authentic restaurants and shops selling inexpensive house wares. Further down Clement you can find a few trendy restaurants and pubs. Living in Richmond apartments for rent offers just the right mix of entertainment, international culture and comfortable living.
