553 Apartments for rent in Duboce Triangle, San Francisco, CA
When the earthquake of 1906 hit and ravaged San Francisco, the tiny neighborhood now known as Duboce Triangle, was given the name Tent City as numerous citizens whose houses were destroyed put up tents and makeshift shelters in the area.
Its current name, however, comes from Victor Duboce, a veteran of the Spanish-American war who was responsible for creating the public park at the heart of this tiny inner-city neighborhood. Also, if you check on the map, you see that Duboce Triangle has a precise triangular shape formed by the streets that mark its borders, i.e. Duboce, Market and Castro streets.
