Mission to Potrero
Not so long ago, there wasn't much to draw visitors to this residential and industrial area of the Mission. However, changes in the city caused a crop of Internet startups to spring up around the Potrero Hill side of the Mission, and with them a flock of chic restaurants and bars. In spite of the surviving businesses and the controversial live/work lofts that are also rapidly filling this neighborhood's empty lots, the area also remains a stronghold of artists and working-class families, though the coexistence of these diverse elements is at times uneasy.
