Lombard Street San Francisco

Lombard Street is one of the most visited street in San Francisco. It is the view from Hyde street with Coit Tower and Bay bridge during the holiday time. You can see there is a "mini" star on top of the Transamerica and the lights are on the Embarcadero Center.It is best known for the one-way section on Russian Hill between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, in which the roadway has eight sharp turns (or switchbacks) that have earned the street the distinction of being the crookedest "most winding "street in the world (though this title is contested).

 

Do you know there is a 2nd Crooked Street in San Francisco?
