The Tenderloin has some of the most beautiful architecture and interesting places. However, if you’ve read about the problem of homelessness in SF this is where you come to experience it. We were staying at the Hilton on O’Farrell so Shannon Street was a block...More

Interesting spot for those who look for more than just the flashing lights in big cities. Very short street (some would call it an alley) with many colorful murals. Vets can have their say in this mural manifestation of global oppression and violence. One of...More
