Having lived in SF some 30 years ago and visiting the City just last week, there are some changes noted. The City is still hustling (in more ways than one!), and bustling. I walked along Market Street from Powell toward the Financial District. I didn't think it was that bad. Yes, there are the homeless but this is SF which... More

Having grown up in the Bay Area, I've been to Market Street many times. Not usually by choice but necessity. I usually really try to avoid the area completely. For being the pride and main street of SF, they sure don't do much to keep it attractive to those who are not used to the stench of urine and poop... More

We stayed at Ritz Carlton Club & Residences (the nicest rooms and best service we have ever had) at Market & Kearney. Great location. Close to Moscone Convention Center, many great resturants, and shopping. Westfield Mall has Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, there is also a Neiman Marcus Last-Call on Market. Got to experience the crowd associated with post World Series win.... More

I both live (near Castro) and work (in the Financial District) on Market Street. Thankfully these areas are much better than most of the miles long thoroughfare. To the west, Market Street is lined with mostly residential buildings and some mixed use business/residential. As you make your way east, it gets more and more congested with hotels, shopping, restaurants, and... More

The most fascinating part is between ferry building to castro. we saw spectacular buildings, famous landmarks and hopped on to cable cars from embarcadero and... More

Market Street is a long transportation street full of shopping, fast food, hotels and street life. Whether you feel safe or disgusted by what you see, this is reality in most large cities. We have travelled by foot, cab, bus and cable car over the years and really have never had any problems. Streets get crowded but with all walks... More

If you like to shop this area is for you, Westfield mall, very nice upscale mall, nordstrom rack, great discounts, Marshall's, the list goes on. Lots of restaurants, prices are expensive and reflected that you are in a large city, no different than New York, Paris, London, Rome.

We rarely go shopping on our trips but market street is a nice stroll especially because you get to see the old fashioned SF cable cars. Most big american retailers are represented here.
