Every home in Pacific Heights has at least a million-dollar view. The neighborhood is 375 feet above sea level at its highest point and a world away from the rest of San Francisco . In the earthquake of 1906, most of the landmark Victorians in Pacific Heights stood firm while the rest of The City got all shook up. Inside the storied mansions of Pacific Heights – and its neighbor to the west, Presidio Heights -- live the elite and the eccentric, including a famous romance novelist and an octogenarian millionaire and his cloned kittens. These people – and those who enjoy watching them – hang out on Fillmore Street , in one of the many gourmet restaurants, clubs and chichi shops. Once you've bought your fill of exotic olive oil, vintage textiles, custom pet furniture, funky cosmetics, jewelry, and designer clothing, you can check out the Fillmore music scene or the nightlife on nearby Union Street.
