HILLS OF SAN FRANCISCO

downtown

Downtown San Francisco is a feast for the eyes. The architecture here is as diverse as the people, plant and wild life. "The City" with the "C" in City capitalized, according to A Companion to California by James D. Hart, is "the sobriquet of San Francisco popularized from the 1850's when it was by far the largest, most populous, and most substantial urban settlement in the state, but in common use later in the 20th century as well."

 

Fine examples of Beaux Arts, Art Deco, International, Victorian and other styles are to be found by walking around the City.
