and postcard photographers prefer the centrally located Lombard Street,
there's another crooked road in the City that's actually crookeder, if
you want to get into an argument about bends per yard divided by percentage
of grade times angle. Mister SF prefers to avoid arguments altogether
and calls both Lombard Street and Vermont Street
(between 20th and 22nd in Potrero Hill) San Francisco's crookedest streets.
Vermont Street and adjacent McKinley Park have even better views
than Lombard, if you can believe it. Though Vermont is without the formal
Lombard, it boasts amazing crooked
trees! To find the so-called real crookedest street by car,
drive south on Van Ness Avenue, which becomes South Van Ness. Turn left
on 16th Street, right on Rhode Island and climb the hill. Turn right on
20th Street, then left on Vermont. Enjoy!
