The only church I've ever seen with a street address of 666, The Church of Saints Peter and Paul is a beautiful building in the heart of North Beach at Washington Square. Originally built to administer to the large local Italian population, it now serves a number of tourists, homeless, and others in the area.

The original church was built in 1884 but was destroyed during the hellific fires of 1906, and the current structure was completed in 1924.
