Now: The little historic, perpetually up-and-coming neighborhood that could. The last neighborhood before the San Francisco world ends at the eastern industrial band and bay. The Dogpatch epicenter is 22nd Street at 3rd Street.
Then: San Francisco's origins as a seaport involved industry and shipbuilding, much of which was centered in this area. The homes were designed as dwellings for workers, some of whom built their own homes. Many of these buildings, dating back to the 1860s, survived 1906 earthquake and fire and stand today.
How To Get There: The Muni T-line runs down Third Street, and the 20th Street station is one (double-length) block north of 22nd Street, the main sector. The 22 Muni bus comes in from the Mission, and the 48 (from 24th/Mission) eventually reaches 22nd Street, although by an indirect route.
