Cars Driving Down Lombard Street’s Tight Curves

San Francisco’s Lombard Street has been called the “Crookedest Street in the World”.  One of the homes was filmed as Jimmy Stewart’s residence in the movie Vertigo.  The block’s extremely tight eight curves were designed to slow down traffic on the steep slope.  Tourists love to come and drive or walk down this famous hill!

      Me too! When I visited the Cable Car Museum, the cable car stopped at the top of Lombard Street. And you can see Coit Tower in the distance – a beautiful view.
