Western Addition, CA

The Western Addition is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California.
The Western Addition is sandwiched between Van Ness Avenue, Golden Gate Park, the Upper and Lower Haight neighborhoods, and Pacific Heights.
Historically, it was an addition to the city west of Van Ness Avenue (hence, "Western Addition"). The area was first developed around the turn of the 20th century as a middle-class suburb served by cable cars. It survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake with its Victorian-style buildings largely intact.
