What neighborhood has the highest average income in the City of San Francisco? Surprisingly, it’s not the well-known neighborhoods in the Northern part of San Francisco like Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Cow Hollow or the Marina. It’s actually West Twin Peaks and Noe Valley, both in the Southern part of the city. We would surmise this has something to do with the explosion of wealth in Silicon Valley and the desire of dot-commers to live in San Francisco. Worth noting is Portrero Hill and Bernal Heights, also in the Southern part of the city and also with significant average income.
Of course, if you go North to Marin or South to San Mateo County, you will find neighborhoods with substantially higher average incomes.
