We love the way readers have been describing their SF neighborhoods here.

AT:SF reader Stephina recently tipped us off to Emeryville-based TurnHere, which has videos that showcase neighborhoods all over the world. She writes, "My favorites so far are the Mission/Potrero Hill video and the Hayes Valley video. I've heard of both places but was never interested in visiting until now."

Stephina goes on to say, "They even have videos on New York and Israel. I haven't seen anything about specific apartments or about whether or not they allow pets but seeing the areas are cool. But I'm still exploring the site so maybe I'll find one. They even accept submissions, maybe one of the readers would like to make a video about their complex and put it on there."

There are quite a few videos showcasing SF neighborhoods, as well as Berkeley/East Bay, Marin, Napa/Sonoma, South Bay, Portland, and Seattle.

However, TurnHere should come with a couple of warnings:
• If you're at work, you probably want to know that there's music included with the videos.
• The videos are addictive.
• You can end up feeling kind of homesick for places you've lived (or visited).

Thanks, Stephina!
