The Sunset District of San Francisco is a neighborhood and the largest district in the city. The atmosphere of Sunset is rather suburban in nature and it is made up of four sub-neighborhoods Inner Sunset, Central Sunset, Outer Sunset and Parkside.

Central Sunset is also primarily residential but does have a commercial strip along Irving Street, it also features the sprawling Sunset Reservoir and the park that surrounds it. Parkside is named for Pine Lake Park, Pine Lake is a natural lake fed by an aquifer and serving as a temporary home to many migratory birds.

There is some debate as to where the name “Sunset” came from some believe a developer named Aurelius Buckingham came up with the name in 1886, others think it came from the California Midwinter Exposition held in 1894. For much of its early history Sunset was sparsely populated. Development began in earnest in the 1870s and continued after, but did not reach it’s peak until after the earthquake of 1906. With the construction of the Twin Peaks Tunnel the area was opened up transportation wise until it grew into a streetcar suburb in the 1930s. The next growth boom came after World War II leading to both a boom in housing and in population.
