I’ve been trying to post photos related to history more often here on San Francisco Photos (SFPhotorama.com) more and more so I have to think a little more about where to go and take pics but recently I visited the Castro Street Muni Station and thought a post about Harvey Milk Plaza is definitely needed here on San Francisco Photos.
Right where Castro and Market Streets intersect is where Harvey Milk Plaza is located. If you’re walking up towards the Castro on Market Street just look for the enormous gay pride flag and you’ll know you’re going the right direction.
By now you’ve probably seen Milk – the film about Harvey Milk directed by Gus Van Sandt and are probably curious about Harvey Milk so it’s worth walking up Market Street or just take Muni to the Castro Street station and just get out and explore the station and Harvey Milk Plaza.
In the plaza there is a bronze plaque as well as photos of Harvey Milks life. It’s definitely worth a visit just for the history of San Francisco.
Free Things To Do In San Francisco – The Crookedest Street In San Francisco – It’s Not Lombard Street!
Well tourists come to San Francisco thinking the crookedest street in San Francisco is Lombard Street but really it’s not it’s actually Vermont Street in the Potrero Hill neighborhood. So I decided to take a trip up to Vermont and shoot a brief video while down Vermont Street. The truth is it’s not as pretty as Lombard Street but yes it’s much more steep and crooked. So if you want a little off the wall experience and you are visiting San Francisco then take a drive out to Potrero Hill and check Vermont Street out. It’s FREE so go enjoy!
Here’s some info about Potrero Hill as well. Perhaps you can go to Anchor Steam Brewery for some tastes!
I love going to Dos Pinas as they have really fresh Mexican food … some of the best that comes from a taqueria. I like to go on Fridays as they have happy hour and have 2 dollar coronas. I usually order their El Busto salad. Yum!!!
I have to say I’ve had one of the best cups of cappuccinos in San Francisco at Cafe Trieste ever so I really like this place. I also like it because it’s so old and has alot of history dating back to the 1950′s with the beatniks and all. I had my first cappuccino for the first time back in April and I’ve been hooked since then. It’s quite amazing and almost as good as Italy. I don’t know why I never went there before but now I know I will enjoy anytime.
Here’s their Web site in case you have interest in learning about Cafe Trieste or get some of that great tasting Italian Roast they use to make those cappuccinos.
