"Lombard Street - Crookedest street in the world." SF Streets Tip by Jerelis
SF Streets, San Francisco: 21 reviews and 30 photos
Located in the Russian Hill district, Lombard Street is known as "the crookedest street in the world" because of its eight sharp turns. The turns, known as switchbacks, were built in the 1920s to allow traffic to descend the steep incline.
The street zigzags around beautiful flowers and offers a nice view of the bay. There are stairways (without curves) on either side of the street for pedestrians.
