About Russian Hill
This district is named after a long-gone 19th century Russian cemetery, but today its most famous attraction is the block of Lombard Street between Hyde and Leavenworth. Here Lombard is steep and switches back eight times, making a worthy challenge for photographers and illicit skateboarders. The steep hill is traced with landscaped pedestrian-only paths and staircases, including Macondray Lane, the setting for Armistead Maupin's <em>Tales of the City</em>. Stalwart hikers are rewarded with panoramic views of the city and the bay at hilltop Sterling Park.
