Now: Close enough to feel the turbulence from Haight Street lap at its doorstep, but far enough away to close the shutters and retreat into Victorian charm.

Then: The Sunset Tunnel, used by the N-Judah Muni Line, was opened in 1928. Cole Valley began to grow around the train stop at the intersection of Carl and Cole.

How To Get There: The Muni N-Judah line stops in Cole Valley (at Cole and Carl Street). You can also walk three blocks up Cole Street from Haight Street.
