That's not the better part of Divisadero - you'd be right next to the Robert B. Pitts projects right below Divisadero on Turk - but it's not a bad area either. I wouldn't make a habit of walking up Turk to get home at night though.

I like that area. It's not the best, but above average in my opinion. I lived near there for a year.

Yeah, I've noticed that even walking to Fillmore from my house feels a bit shady not matter what time of the day. I mean, it's not horrible, but I've definitely encountered some shady characters.

The housing projects right across the street are noisy from time to time, but so far I haven't seen anything scary. Sometimes old ladies who seem drunk that live there will ask me weird questions and seem totally out of it. One asked to borrow my cell phone to call her auntie (hell no) but I didn't want to take any risks...that's how I got my last phone stolen!

Dated a guy that lived a block west of there (Broderick). I don't remember feeling uncomfortable regardless of day or night (then again I'm 6' 4" so that helps ). I don't think he ever had any issues with property crime (he didn't have a car to worry about). Those projects are probably the most innocuous ones in town. Just take the usual urban precautions.
