San Francisco, Part 2-Noe Valley and the Castro: 1 March 2015


Part two of my three part photo gallery of a ramble in San Francisco on 1 March 2015.

The route of my 1 March ramble. The approximate distance traveled as tracked by GPS was 8.8 miles. The approximate cumulative elevation gain was 652 feet. Mile markers are shown on the route’s track.

Looking at Noe Valley from Sanchez Street. San Bruno Mountain can be seen in the background. San Bruno Mountain is located in the city of San Bruno in San Mateo County.
The intersection of 24th Street and Castro Street, which is part of a shopping district in Noe Valley.

Cranking up Castro Street; leaving Noe Valley and entering the Castro District.
I saw some lovely houses on Castro Street.

 Near the summit of Castro Street. The view is looking north, and the Castro District is straight ahead.
The heart of the Castro District.
Harvey's Restaurant is named for Harvey Milk, a San Francisco supervisor who was assassinated inside San Francisco City Hall on 27 November 1978, along with Mayor George Moscone, by Dan White, who was also a San Francisco Supervisor. About two weeks before these assassinations, a group of 913 people, mainly from San Francisco, and members of the Peoples Temple, an American religious organization, committed suicide in Jonestown, which was located Guyana, South America. Ugh, I still remember what a horrible month that was for the Bay Area.
The iconic Castro Theatre is showing Alfred Hitchcock's iconic 1958 movie Vertigo. (Vertigo
Outdoor seating at CafĂ© Flore.
A view of upper Market Street. Castro Street is at the intersection. The hill in the background is the northern portion of Twin Peaks and beyond Twin Peaks is Sutro Tower.
