Neighbors who live near the lower Pacific Heights Victorian, where the hit 90s TV show “Full House” was set, are fed up with the number of tourists showing up to take pictures out in front.
And now, the city is considering banning tour buses from driving on that block.
A fairly steady crowd of visitors came to snap selfies in front of the Broderick Street home on Friday and pose with their families on the same steps of the home of the fictional Tanner clan.
The house is featured in both the 90s hit show “Full House” and the now Netflix reboot “Fuller House.” The show’s producer bought the house for a cool $4 million when it came on the market two years ago, telling the Hollywood Reporter at the time that it was great to be able to preserve it for the fans.
The tourists KRON4 talked to said it was an important stop on their trip.
“Because we watched it all of our lives, is one of those bucket list things,” one tourist said. “You’re gonna be in San Francisco, you got to see the Tanner house.”
But those who live on the street say having so many nostalgia seekers stopping by is a nuisance.
“It’s a nightmare for those who live here,” one resident said. “We get asked all the time, ‘Why don’t you move? Why do you live here?’ Which doesn’t seem reasonable. I mean, someone should be able to live here, but with thousands of visitors. double parked cars block driveway’s, tour buses, it just gets out-of-control. That’s a lot of visitors for one block any day or weekend.”
Next week, the SFMTA board will consider banning tour buses from being able to drive on the block.
The “Full House” fans KRON4 spoke to were sympathetic.
“We love the show,” one fan said. “We watch ‘Fuller House’ also, but to live around it, probably be like, ‘All right. Come on. This is getting annoying now'”
If the proposed tour bus ban is passed on Tuesday, it could go into effect in about four-to-six weeks.
Here is a statement from Jeff Franklin, the producer of “Full House.”
“I realize my Broderick neighbors are frustrated with fan visits and I sympathize. Limiting tour buses may provide some relief, but I believe die-hard Full/Fuller House fans will find a way to visit. Since I bought the house a few years ago, I have asked fans to be quick and courteous via social media and signs at the property. I will be re-modeling the house shortly, and for the next 8-12 months the home will not be very photogenic, which may help. My longterm plan for the property is to sell it. And to the tour bus-issue reporter who felt it necessary to also quote from a bad review of Fuller House, I’m proud to announce we were just nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Program. :)”
