A view of Lombard Street that you typically don't see in photos... This is the infamous zigzag road in San Francisco, California. It is often filled with tourist photographing vehicles as they head downward at a 27% grade.
The road was built in 1922 at the suggestion of original property owner Carl Henry. Today, the road sees about 2,630 vehicles per day, mostly by motorist just curious about the awkward brick path.
The road is in the eastern segment of the Russian Hill neighborhood. As far as people count... About 17,000 tourist will visit the roadway on a busy day.
