Outer Richmond is a neighborhood in the northwest corner of San Francisco developed initially in the late 19th century. It is sandwiched between the Presidio to the north and Golden Gate Park to the south. It is sometimes confused with Richmond, a city 20 miles (32km) north of San Francisco. With the Pacific Ocean on its west, the Outer Richmond neighborhood is known for its foggy weather and colder climate due to the wind chills blowing in from the ocean. The neighborhood is also home to a vast affluent Chinese population with its commercial strips on Geary Blvd. and Clement Street commonly referred to as the second Chinatown, boasting more highly rated Chinese restaurants than Chinatown itself. The Outer Richmond also has deep Irish and Russian roots and has many Catholic and Orthodox churches.
