Pics I have picked #5 (San Francisco)

Ever heard of the Lombard Street in San Francisco?

 

Streets define the city. And sometimes streets even become a landmark of the city they belong to. When you hear Wallstreet or Champs Elysées, you think about New York or Paris. Lombard Street didn’t rang a bell to me but recently I discovered this beautiful street.

Lombard Street is a fascinating street in San Francisco and is desribed as:

…an east–west street in San Francisco, California that is famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns. The famous one-block section, claimed as “the most crooked street in the world”, is located along the eastern segment in the Russian Hill neighborhood. The street was named after Lombard Street in Philadelphia by San Francisco surveyor Jasper O’Farrell.

Here are some more pics of the street:

If you know hidden streets that are fascinating… Let me know!
