San Francisco Neighborhoods - Russian Hill Real Estate

The neighborhood got its name when gold rushers found seven Cyrillic-inscribed gravestones at the top of the hill. Consensus on the identity of the Russian men buried there -- they were reputed to be anything from sailors to fur trappers -- was never reached, the gravestones disappeared in the late 1800s and the Russian influence has long since dissipated. Today, the area is the home of the elite, but its stairways and vistas are open to everyone. The neighborhood's stunning background of downtown high-rises, the blue waters of the San Francisco Bay and bay-windowed houses make ideal backdrops for movie producers. Action-movie producers, in particular, like to use the area's rollercoaster terrain for dramatic car chases and death-defying stunts.
