Answer: Known around the world for it’s Victorian rowhouses, which spectacular hilltop park is an ideal picture taking spot?

Answer: Alamo Square

Characterized by Victorian architecture that was left largely untouched by the urban renewal projects in other parts of the Western Addition.

The park includes a playground and a tennis court, and is frequented by neighbors, tourists, and dog owners. On a clear day, the Transamerica Pyramid building and the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge can be seen from the park’s center. The San Francisco City Hall can be seen directly down Fulton Street.

There are many architecturally significant mansions on the perimeter of the park, including the Archbishop’s Mansion, the residences of the Russian and German Imperial consuls in the early 1900s, and the mansions on the block diagonally across from the Painted Ladies.
