Since we got on a "house-talk" tangent in my Southeastern SF photo thread, I thought it would be cool to do one for houses. If anyone wants to share their local architecture, this is the place! I'll start it with some classic San Francisco beauties, including row houses & Victorians (basically all we have). Sorry about the poor quality, but I'm still just snapping pics with my camera phone... also sorry for those pesky power-lines, but the city's actually working on that. Enjoy!

From the Excelsior District:












Visitacion Valley (shown on the other thread):


Haight Street (also duplicated):






And a plug for the Sunset Library, a beautiful old building that was just renovated & re-opened:

No wonder so many people want to live in Seattle.

That city just looks incredible!

Wow! The more I see SF, the more I fall in love with the city. Funny thing though, my friend used to live in Jersey City, NJ & she rented a house that looked like the house in the 2nd & 3rd pics, but the landlord didn't keep it as nice. The whole neighborhood was full of houses like that. Imagine if those homes were kept up like these SF homes - we'd have a SF on the East Coast.

I love San Francisco and Seattle. Great cities.

Alright I am going to post a few of what will be my new neighborhood in Boston after I leave Phoenix next week (wonder why?)



The Fox News sign is a little out of place!


Old North Church in the background.

Paul Revere's Home which is right around the corner from where I am going to be living!


Check out the Mary shrines in the alley. The North End is very Italian!

See? Very Italian. Can't wait for the food!

I thought this was hilarious. It was in the window of this little convenience store that had the name "The Karnah Staah."


A little snow.

The North End with Downtown Boston in the background.

From above; notice the Old North Church in the background.

Thats beautiful Irwin! I love Boston. Your first bite of REAL food (not that crap in Phoenix) and youll realize what youve been missing all along and wonder how you lived w/o it for so long. Trust me on that. LOL

How far is that from downtown?
