Lombard Street is an east–west street in San Francisco, California. It is famous for having a steep, one-block section that consists of eight tight hairpin turns. The street was named after Lombard Street in Philadelphia by San Francisco surveyor, Jasper O’Farrell.
Whenever a friend visits me in San Francisco for the first time, Lombard Street is on the agenda. Sadly to get a great perspective of the curvy street for a photo requires access to one of of the buildings down the hill.
