Mister SF on Russian Hill
paths that disappear into the hill, Russian Hill is simply magical.
In the springtime, the scent of jasmine fills the air. Wild rosemary, thistle,
and lavendar also dot the landscape. In spite of its great views and natural
beauty, there's plenty of elbow room here due to some steep climbs from
surrounding neighborhoods. The San Franciscan has great calf muscles! On
Russian Hill, nothing compares with cappuccino in the garden of a friend
at sunset. The back stairways of neighboring buildings surround these inner
gardens in Escher-like fashion, criss crossing
every which way. While any one of Russian Hill's lush parks and lovely
stairway walks would charm an entire neighborhood, Ina
Coolbrith Park is the jewel of Russian Hill's crown.
But wait! The northern and western parts of Russian Hill are also quite cool.
