Now: The Hayes Valley commercial sector doesn't have the historic feel that many older neighborhoods have - it's young in age, but adult in style. As a destination, it serves theater and symphony patrons as well as high-end fashion and furnishing shoppers.

Then: Prior to the 1989 earthquake, this area's proximity to the freeway off-ramp made it an undesirable area. After the damaged section of freeway was removed, it cleared the way in the 1990s for growth and trendification.

How To Get There: A short walk west down Hayes Street from the Civic Center Muni/BART station, or northwest from the Van Ness Muni Station, Hayes Valley is centrally located and easy to get to from several neighborhoods. If you're driving to Hayes Valley, you can usually find a parking spot on Grove Street, west of Laguna.
