The Great Apartment Hunt

We're feeling intrepid, we're feeling unstoppable. We're looking for an apartment in the Haight.

This is the first in a short series of stories chronicling a real, live apartment search. We know, as you do, that the rental market in San Francisco is going a little wacky right now, which is why we're going public and sharing what we learn.

We're pooling expertise here, so give it up: your best apartment find, your favorite search engine, your great Aunt Tilly's wisdom from 70 years ago--we want it all.

The criteria: 0 - 1 bedroom, $1800 or less. Upper Haight and environs. Roof. Direct sunlight. Hardwood floors.

The time frame: by June.

The prize: Home Sweet Haight.

Can it be done? We're about to find out.
