All About

Living In Brisbane, CA

Brisbane is a small community in the San Francisco area of approximately 4,000 residents that began during the Great Depression as a place for people to build their own homes on cheap lots.

Apartment hunters seeking a comfortable, small-town feel will feel welcome in Brisbane, which centers around a main street and is known for its natural beauty.

Perhaps the most known aspect of Brisbane is a tradition that takes place during the holiday season every winter, which invites the participation of all apartment tenants in the community.

The tradition, which gives Brisbane its nickname, the "City of Stars," involves town residents putting up large, lighted stars on their homes. Started by Arthur Kennedy in 1940, the tradition has transformed into a festival display of light for travelers on Highway 101 and Airport Boulevard.

Because of Brisbane's location, surrounded by hills, the stars provide a spectacular view at night for passers-by as well as those renting apartments in the city. Many residents even keep the stars up after the holiday season and throughout the entire year.

As a result of this tradition, outsiders began calling Brisbane "America's Christmas Card Town." More stars were added by residents each year after Kennedy began the tradition, and most of those who currently call Brisbane home participate in the tradition.

In addition to the star tradition, Brisbane also hosts an annual Festival of Lights celebration during the holidays that displays the talents of the artists in the town and includes a tree lighting. For Brisbane apartment hunters, holiday traditions like this will not be found in any other location.
