San Francisco


I shot this out the window of my sister's old apartment in North Beach back in 2007. They had the best views from their apartment. Here, you're looking at Russian Hill where the tall apartment buildings are. That's Lombard St. just to the right of those buildings, famous as the most crooked street in the world (although there's a street that's even more crooked in San Fransisco's Potrero Hill neighborhood).

I'm an SF native, so of course I'm diggin' this shot, but please do tell me the street that's crook(ed) in Potrero Hill ...

It's Vermont St. between 20th St. and 22nd St. It is steeper and has tighter curves, but has a couple fewer bends.

According to Wikipedia, someone measured the sinuosity of both Lombard and Vermont streets, and proved that Vermont is indeed more "crooked" (sinuosity of 1.56 versus 1.2 for Lombard Street. I've been on Vermont St. once, it was about ten years ago.
