The Central Sunset lies between the Inner and Outer Sunset neighborhoods, a short distance from Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park. Central Sunset homes are in an area that still has the feel of a small town with a decidedly urban edge.
Thanks to generations of immigrants who settled here and opened businesses, the Central Sunset has a global village vibe; that means plenty of great ethnic restaurants combined with trendy new upstarts and bold experiments in vegan and raw food. Though much of the neighborhood is residential, many businesses and shops line busy Irving Street in the eastern portion of the neighborhood. Muni's N-Judah light-rail line offers service to downtown areas, as well as the Pacific Ocean.
