Explore San Francisci, Street Cable and more!

While Lombard Street isn't really the "crookedest street in the world" it certainly gets the most fanfare and is the most photographed with its gorgeous Victorian mansions and horticulture that lives up to San Francisco's reputation as the City of Flower Children. Seems that back in the 1920 locals concerned with safety re-engineered the road with numerous switchbacks. See: http://www.sftodo.com/lomabardcrookedstreet.html
