When catching up with Loida about her Zephyr anniversary, she shared some inside information about herself to get to know her better.

1. What neighborhood do you live in and why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“I’ve lived in several neighborhoods over the years – the Mission, Alamo Square, Buena Vista Park, and the Sunset. I’ve recently moved back to my spot on Buena Vista Park after several years in the Outer Sunset (I loved living so close to the beach!). But it’s great returning to the geographical center of the city with its easy access to all the diverse neighborhoods that I frequent on a daily basis.”

2. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out?

“There’s nothing better than a walk on the beach to clear my head. When I’m looking for mental stimulation, I enjoy exploring the numerous spaces for contemporary art in the city – they run the gamut from world-class museums to exciting storefront galleries. The southeast neighborhoods, such as Dogpatch, are quickly becoming a hub for a variety of new top-notch art venues.”

3. Is there one neighborhood in SF that you think is truly a hidden gem and why?

“I don’t know about hidden, but certainly lesser known are the Ocean Beach neighborhoods of Outer Sunset/Parkside. They form a district where young families can still afford a single family home amid a wonderful kid-friendly community that embraces the cross-over between food, art, and surf culture. And the sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are amazing!”
