I want to live directly in the center of China Town San Francisco. Preferably on stockton in the most crowded areas.

Cost isn't an issue, but I cant seem to find rent listings. I'm guessing rental listings are more by word of mouth?

Any suggestions? Anyone lived there?

Are you Chinese?
As the famous quote goes from the classic Nicholson flick:
Quote:
"It's Chinatown, Jake."

Maybe the rental listings are all in Chinese, in the neighborhood weekly. Just a guess. A lot of those buildings are rented as cheap hotels.

The food is better in the "new" Chinatown on Clement Street.

That area has always been great for Chinese food. "Real" Chinese food. Chinatown in Cantonese. The Richmond District is different types of northern cuisine. But the OP didn't say his interest was in the food.

Food is one of the primary reasons. The top reason is that I want to feel surrounded by an immigrant community. I don't think The Richmond District has the same immigrant density level or amount of mixed-used development. It probably does have less tourists though.

That area of the Richmond has Asian and Russian immigrants.

You are not going to find too many rentals there because:

1. rentals are scarce to begin with.

2. Many rentals in Chinatown are SROs for low-income.

3. The remaining rental stocks are mostly owner-occupied condos or rent-controlled units where the tenants will never leave.

4. The few available ones are probably advertised in Chinese medium.
