Is it its perch above the city? The bars? Perhaps it's Cortland 331 and the awesome neighborhood blog Bernalwood that makes Bernal Heights the hottest 'hood? There's many reasons we love the neighborhood, but we're not the only ones.
Real Estate site Redfin ranked the coolest spots to call home and found that the southern San Francisco neighborhood was hotter than Vegas's Desert Shores, and L.A.'s Eagle Rock.
When it came to deciding the top neighborhood of 2014, Bernalwood broke the news and noted they used qualifiers such as easy commutes and affordable prices -- we guess a median sale price of $982,500 looks affordable to someone. Not us, but we digress. Oh wait, and they said good schools too. Apparently they're unaware of San Francisco's public school lottery system.
In a further breakdown of the top 5 neighborhoods of San Francisco, we scanned the list looking for the place we call home and found -- there's not another San Francisco neighborhood on the list! Apparently they believe San Francisco is synonymous with Bay Area. We weren't even sure where a couple of the neighborhoods were -- Niles? Cipriani?
Good thing they provided a map.
Well, we still love you Bernal, regardless of their qualifiers. Congratulations on being so hot.
