Lombard Street (USA) – description, history, location. Exact address, phone number, website. Reviews of tourists, photos and videos.
The most visited by tourists street in San Francisco, Lombard Street cannot boast of any skyscrapers, or boutiques, or attractions. The secret of its popularity is in the meandering – it is the most “crooked” street in the United States. Eight sharp turns on a 400-meter stretch of Russian Hill and a surface slope of almost 30 degrees made Lombard Street the most photographed street in San Fran.
Lombard Street was once absolutely straight, literally falling down the hill to its foot. For pedestrians, this did not present difficulties (although certain physical training was required to conquer the street), but with the massive spread of cars in the early 20th century, traffic along Lombard Street became difficult: no car could overcome such a steepness. Then the city authorities laid a serpentine here, which had to be “turned” eight times for an acceptable slope of the road. At the same time, the street was paved with red brick tiles, which only added to its attractiveness.
Colorful mansions and lush flowerbeds have made Lombard Street a popular destination for photo shoots.
