Noe Valley is named after Jose de Jesus Noe, the last Mexican mayor of San Francisco. He used to own what is in present day Noe Valley as part of his Rancho San Miguel. The neighborhood was developed at the beginning of the 20th century after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.
One of the best neighborhoods for coffee-and-a-bagel mornings and bourgeois sensibilities, many joke about Noe Valley’s “stroller population”. Given the current and neighboring area residents, it has attracted upper scale merchants. Expect handmade products, organic produce and higher end products when shopping.
Rebecca’s Take: Noe is a fun upscale stroller-friendly and pet-friendly neighborhood. Its true San Francisco charm will be great for families and empty nesters. For singles, the proximity to everything, especially the businesses at The Castro make this neighborhood a delight.
Noe Valley has one of the highest concentration of row houses in the city. It is home to classic Victorian and Edwardian residential architecture- some of which still has unchanged facades from their original creation. Noe is currently home to many urban professionals, particularly young families with children as well as more mature residents who has owned a property there all their life. Due to successive waves of gentrification, it is now considered an upscale neighborhood where a well-maintained property selling for $1-2 million is not unusual.
