Welcome to Curbed Cuts, where Curbed SF editor Lamar Anderson shares the best real estate and neighborhood news of the week.

SAN FRANCISCO—Welp, the median rent for a one-bedroom has climbed once again, to $3,200/month—up nearly $500 from a year ago. See how your rent compares with the rest of your neighborhood via this handy map.

EXCELSIOR—Anne Hathaway's house from The Princess Diaries has landed on the market for $2.6 million. Future heads of fictional monarchies, head right this way.

SAN FRANCISCO—Disney's forthcoming feature Big Hero 6 is set in a futuristic hybrid of SF and Tokyo dubbed, naturally, San Fransokyo. The results are kind of trippy.

BAY AREA—We test-drove a new app that lets you send postcards from the past. Here now are 10 vintage postcards paired with the same views today.

ALAMO SQUARE—Now's your chance to live like a 19th-century captain of industry. The sprawling Classical Revival Koster manse is for sale, and it has loads of potential.

SAN FRANCISCO—Midcentury San Francisco is long gone, but that doesn't mean you can't stalk it like Jimmy Stewart tailing Kim Novak in Vertigo. So we built a map that will help you with that.

SAN FRANCISCO AND EAST BAY—Alert! Curbed SF is seeking two freelance contributors.
