Bayview-Hunters Point ("BVHP") consists of the combined area of Bayview and Hunters Point. The Bayview-Hunters Point district is located in the southeastern part of San Francisco, strung along the main artery of Third Street from India Basin to Candlestick Point. Since it is located in the southeastern corner of San Francisco, it is known for its year round dazzling sun rises and continuous sunlight throughout the day. Its sunny exposure also makes it the warmest and least foggy part of the city. It sits on several hills and provides the residents with spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay which wraps around the eastern and southern sides of the community.
Hunters Point was named after a family of three brothers, John, Phillip and Robert Hunter. They were real
estate agents who were unable to sell the vacant land on the outskirts of the city for development. So, they
built their homes and dairy farm on the land (now near the present-day corner of Griffith Street and Oakdale Avenue) during the nineteenth century.
The community known to many San Franciscans as "HP" has gone through a dynamic shift in the demographics in recent years. With a growing populations of Asian-Americans and Latino-Americans moving into the area, the next generation of history for the regions is upon us. Many of the African-Americans in the area are the children of the massive Southern migration of the 1940s, during which thousands of African Americans came from Southern states for job opportunities at the burgeoning war industries at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.
