Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. In honor of Outdoors Week, we're investigating park-adjacent apartments listed between $3,100 and $3,500/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Our lowest-priced option is this one-bedroom directly opposite Golden Gate Park in the Inner Sunset. It's hard to tell if there are really any good park views from the apartment, but it couldn't get much closer. The unit itself is freshly renovated and has stainless steel appliances and laundry in-unit. Get ready to take your dog right over to the park, because pets are allowed.
↑ This one-bedroom in Pacific Heights across from Lafayette Park boasts views of both the park and Alcatraz through its big windows. The kitchen is oddly shaped but looks decent and there's laundry in the building. No pets.
↑ For $3,300 a month, this spacious Marina one-bedroom has views right into the greenery of the Moscone Recreation Center. Fort Mason and Marina Boulevard are also just around the corner. The apartment's kitchen and bathroom are way outdated, but there are walk-in closets. Parking is available in a common garage for an extra $250 per month.
↑ Over on the Inner Richmond's leafy Lake Street, near the Presidio, a one-bedroom with a lovely backyard can be had for $3200/month. You could also use the formal dining room as a second bedroom. It's not technically on the park, but the Presidio is within shouting distance, and a window seat overlooks the trees of Lake Street. There's laundry in the building and no mention of a pet policy.
↑ And finally, if you want to live as close to Dolores Park as you can get, here's a one-bedroom with shiny hardwood floors and a brand-new kitchen but no views. At $3,495 per month, it's the most expensive of our list. Pets are welcome.
