Alamo Square — Painted Ladies

One of the most photographed locations in San Francisco, Alamo Square's famous "postcard row" at Hayes and Steiner Streets is indeed a visual treat. A tight, escalating formation of Victorian houses is back-dropped by downtown skyscrapers, providing a stunning contrast. The grassy square itself is an ideal midday break. [Bernard Spragg.

The crown jewels of San Francisco’s Victorian treasures, this row of houses called “Postcard Row” is one of the most-photographed residential streets in America.

Bounded by Webster, Broderick, Oak and Golden Gate streets, Alamo Square Park looks out over the downtown area to the east, framing these turn-of-the-century beauties against a backdrop of modern skyscrapers.

A number of the houses are open to the public either on private-home tours or as B&Bs.
