Tenderloin, San Francisco

The '''Tenderloin''' is a neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, California, in the flatlands on the southern slope of Nob Hill (Nob Hill, San Francisco), situated between the Union Square (Union Square, San Francisco) shopping district to the northeast and the Civic Center (Civic Center, San Francisco) office district to the southwest. It encompasses about 50 square blocks, is a large wedge triangle in shape (point faces East), and a conservative description has it bounded on the north by Geary Street, on the east by Mason Street, on the south by Market Street (Market Street (San Francisco)) and on the west by Van Ness Avenue. The northern boundary with Lower Nob Hill (Neighborhoods in San Francisco#Lower Nob Hill) historically has been set at Geary Street (Geary Boulevard).

The terms Tenderloin Heights or The Tendernob (Tendernob) refer to the area around the indefinite boundary between the Upper Tenderloin and Lower Nob Hill. The eastern extent, near Union Square, overlaps with the Theater District (San Francisco Theater District). Part of the western extent of the Tenderloin, Larkin and Hyde Streets between Turk and O'Farrell (Jasper O'Farrell), was officially named "Little Saigon (Little Saigon#San Francisco)" by the City of San Francisco.
