Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Overview

Telegraph Hill

Telegraph Hill is home to the famous Coit Tower, one of the City's most recognizable landmarks, which rises 210 feet. Built in 1933 with a bequest from the infamous Lillie Hitchcock Coit, it affords majestic views all across the bay. The hill was originally called Loma Alta ("High Hill") by the Spaniards, followed by Goat Hill, and then arrived at its current moniker in 1862. The Filbert Steps are well-known for the gardens that flow down to Levi Plaza. Telegraph Hill, while mostly a residential neighborhood, is adjacent to North Beach's bustling nightlife. Today, Telegraph Hill is also famous for its flock of feral parrots, descendents from escaped or released pets, and the topic of a 2003 book and subsequent documentary entitled The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

Bay Area Beauty: The Architecture of the Residence Park
San Francisco, CA – September 12, 2014 – During the decades that followed the earthquake of 1906, new neighborhoods emerged in many parts of San Francisco. Influenced by the City Beautiful movement of the period, developers focused on land located in the outlying areas in the southern and western parts of the City. Some of the largest tracts of land west of Twin Peaks attracted a new form of residential neighborhood known as the ‘residence park’, areas defined by single family homes totally free of commercial development, integrated by a setting of green landscaped corridors and front yards. Balboa Terrace is among a very small number of such neighborhoods representing this approach to residential development in San Francisco.
