Stockton Street (San Francisco)
Stockton Street is a north-south street in San Francisco. It begins at Market Street passing Union Square, a major shopping district in the city. It then runs underground for about two and a half blocks in the Stockton Street Tunnel, passes through Chinatown and North Beach, and ends at Beach Street near Pier 39.
In Chinatown, Stockton is the neighborhood's main shopping and business street, a place where locals go to buy the freshest and cheapest produce and meats. The stores also offer live seafood and dried herbs. Some shops located on Stockton Street include the Hop Hing Ginseng Company, the Kowloon Market, the Luen Sing Fish Market, Louie's Produce, and Fruit City.
SPUR has described Stockton Street in Chinatown as "an example of true urbanization, replete with a strong transit network, multigenerational families living in tightly knit spaces, hundreds of mom-and-pop stores and a bustling streetlife" and a success of "grassroots organizing to protect Chinatown’s affordability, culture and urban form". In this area, Stockton Street is dominated by mixed-use buildings that are three to four stories high, with shops on the ground floor and residential apartments upstairs.
