Lombard Street claims to be the 'crookedest street' in San Francisco - the instantly recogniseable landmark is an eight hairpin-bend road which zig-zags down one block of Lombard Street between Hyde Street and Leavenworth Street. This block is lavishly planted with colourful flowerbeds and boasts the most expensive real estate property in San Francisco city.
Lombard Street connects the Boulevard in Presidio in the west to The Embarcadero in the eastern harbour front. The one block in Russian Hill known as Crookedest Street has become one of San Francisco's most well-known landmarks alongside the Golden Gate Bridge and the Coit Tower on top of Telegraph Hill. Crookedest Street is paved with red bricks, is restricted to one-way, single lane, downhill traffic and has a speed limit of 5mph.
