The Southwest portion of San Francisco consists of a diverse mix of communities much like the rest of San Francisco. The neighborhoods which comprise this area include Lake Shore, Merced Manor, Lakeside, Stonestown, Merced Heights, Oceanview, Ingleside, Ingleside Heights. It's an area often overlooked but worth considering as many homes are detached. In addition, this part of the city is continuing to gentrify. In addition, many of these neighborhoods are set between San Francisco State University and City College of San Francisco. Sterngrove, Lake Merced, Harding Park, and the San Francisco Zoo are also located in this part of the city.
