A beautiful example of an earlier skyscraper, with lots of history, as we found out on our walking tour.
Once a school, a crime writer lived there, survived the earthquake and lots, lots more. Reminds me of the Flatiron building in NY.

This is an historical building in front of the Powell Street Cable car turnaround station. The lobby is very grand and impressive. The elevators have an old classical design.
There some shops here at the ground floor, otherwise nothing else special.
I actually came here for a tailor housed in the building. I caught sight of some displays on the lobby and started to look at them. Quite an interesting history with background and olds photos displayed. Worth a few minutes for history buffs or those...More
Great old historic SF building. It survived the 1906 earthquake. In the 70's there was a five and dime store on the first floor. They hired a 'speiler' (an English man who moved from department selling a single item to a crowd using great energy)...More
I love this building. It is one of the few buildings that survived the 1906 earthquake. It has been completely restored and it is just gorgeous, but in a very authentic way. Dashiell Hammett worked in this building and then used it in his detective...More

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
