LOMBARD STREET SAN FRANCISCO HAS A TWIN! FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG – Fireball carves San Francisco onto Lombard Street! But did you know there are TWO CROOKED STREETS?

Lombard Street is an east–west street in San Francisco, California that is famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns.

Stretching from The Presidio east to The Embarcadero (with a gap on Telegraph Hill), most of the street’s western segment is a major thoroughfare designated as part of U.S. Route 101.

The famous one-block section, claimed to be “the crookedest street in the world”, is located along the eastern segment in the Russian Hill neighborhood.

It is a major tourist attraction, receiving around two million visitors per year and up to 17,000 per day on busy summer weekends, as of 2015.[1]

The street was named after Lombard Street in Philadelphia by San Francisco surveyor Jasper O’Farrell.
