The Financial District has an interesting history, and is perhaps San Francisco’s oldest neighborhoods. The name “Barbary Coast” is derived from 18th century references to the wild coast of North Africa. Over time, the term became synonymous with pirates and debauchery. Thus, during the Gold Rush era of San Francisco, the nine-block area bounded by Montgomery Street, Washington Street, Stockton Street and Broadway became known as the Barbary Coast.
Ships that were abandoned off the coast ultimately sunk and were covered with landfill in the area and have continued to be uncovered during construction as late as 2001. The Financial District, predominately a commercial center high-rise office buildings and historic banks built on Gold Rush fortunes, offers a smattering of upscale apartments and condominiums – and the demand is growing. Four-star restaurants and hotels, as well as services of all kinds, are never more than a block away.
