Date: October 1999 & August 13, 2009

Called the “World’s Crookedest Street” winding downward from Russian Hill, this one block long one way street snakes its way with eight hairpin turns. Built in 1922, the street has been used in chase scenes in dozens of movies such as Clint Eastwoods “Magnun Force” and the recent “Ant Man & the Wasp”. Being such a popular Roadside Attraction it averages about 250  cars per hour driving down it not counting tourists taking photos. We walked the street with the kids and it was mildly busy. All of the residents on both sides of the street had beautiful flower gardens everywhere.  It is dangerous as there are no sidewalks – you walk or run in the street. At night you could see 210 foot tall Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill in the upper right (Photo#1). A few blocks away was Fisherman’s Wharf with famous seafood restaurants and lots of sea lions (Photo#4).
