San Francisco wants to go to too many places, but the time spent in San Francisco is too short, leaving me the space to visit San Francisco next time. For example, the legendary largest Chinese city in the world, the Six Sisters Tower in Alamo Square, the longest mosaic staircase in the United States, restaurants built on cliffs, the legendary Devil Island and the nearby Antelope Valley, etc. San Francisco, I must go again.
On the east side of Alamo Square, there is a group of Queen Anne-style houses, which won the top camera award of San Francisco tourist attractions. They are known as "Postcard Scenery Collection". They are the signs of San Francisco architecture, and the local people are affectionately called "Six Sisters". In stark contrast, behind this row of "postcard scenery" stands the Financial District of skyscrapers. Six Victorian two-storey dwellings have the same style, the same volume and different colors. These six houses are the only unaffected house in San Francisco after the magnitude 8 earthquake in 1906. They are one of the few well-preserved classical buildings in San Francisco. They have become tourist attractions. So far, the house is still inhabited.
Alamo Square is a famous park in San Francisco. It's suitable to bring relatives and colleagues together. It's not a thing worth capitalizing on. The park has a good space for walking and relaxing. It's very good for picnic, scenery and photography. The park is a little small but very beautiful. More than 80 years ago, in a big earthquake in San Francisco, the whole city except these. The houses built together did not collapse, but almost destroyed in the whole process.
I used to live two blocks from this iconic park -- bordered by the infamous Painted Ladies and opening credits of everyone's favorite family "The Tanners."Here is where I'd sought refuge from my writing deadlines and my exercise-deprived, atrophied legs needed stretching. All it took was the wind whipping up off the bay onto the knolls to put color into my cheeks and the sheer joy of watching dogs emancipated from their leashes to get my groove back. It even has the kitsch factor of being the opening to "Full House," a great conversation piece that inevitably segues to the irony of Bob Saget being one of the filthiest comedians ever, the Olson twins' anorexia, and Dave Goulier the recipient of movie theatre bowchickabow from Alanis Morisette. On frigid summer nights, you can snuggle with a loved one under a blanket with whisky and catch one of their movie nights.
Alamo Square is actually a small hill. It has a good view. There are lawns for people to relax on the hill. The most important thing is that there are six Victorian houses on Steiner Street on the east side of the square. It was not collapsed by the earthquake, so it became a symbol of San Francisco.
A parks a park a parks a park and this is one of the city's most underrated and symbolic (Full House? Painted Ladies?). Alamo Square is right in the center of the city and on the "less-foggy" side of the city. Looking West at sundown provides an excellent sunset. Looking East you can see the entire city. Hangout, food, dogs, pretty girls, and soft grass.
