After the movie Milk with Sean Penn many people got familiar with the name Harvey Milk and with his legacy. It was cool to see that the people from the neighborhood take care of this plaza proudly.

The Harvey Milk Plaza is a tiny memorial honouring Harvey Milk by means of several signs adjacent to a public transport station. The 'Harvey Milk Plaza' signage rests on a walkway that is lined with trees and greenery. All in all, this is not a site to seek out, but worth checking off your list when in the Castro District.

Simple food executed terribly. Cooks lack knowledge of temperature of proteins. Average Restaurant with average prices.

Harvey Milk was a civil rights icon of SF. If you have watched the movie about him with Sean Penn then definitely visit the Harvey Milk plaza.

I thought there would be more to see at Harvey Milk Plaza so it was a little disappointing but you have to visit if you're in the Castro area.

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
