The real heart of San Francisco

clipped from travel.nytimes.com
WHILE Paris has its boulevards and Miami its beaches, San Francisco’s lure is its labyrinth of back alleys, those mysterious midblock detours that seem to offer, in equal doses, the promise of discovery and the slightly scary possibility of getting lost — really lost.

San Francisco has its one way streets, its hills, its crazy cab drivers, its double parkers and its self-righteous crosswalkers. And I love it! You should be so lucky to get lost in this amazing city. Compared to many cities, this is one where most of its citizens, if they speak English, will help a visitor out if you need directions. So don't be scared...
