Situated in the most central of locations in a dense city of diverse micro-hoods, the Lower Haight blends the style of the Fillmore, the energy of Castro, and the history of the Haight all in one hood. The Lower Haight itself holds its own in the culture of SF, with a popular seasonal Art Walk. Vendors and artists come together to show their talents creating a collective within its borders. The area's sense of community is unmatched, with the resident's passionate support for the local businesses in their hood.
