Alamo Square park is in the center of the city and on a hill. From the park, the view of the city is incredible. And of course, it is bordered on one side by those famous victorian homes that we call The Painted Ladies. They aren't those wild pastel colors any more, but beautiful just the same. I've included some photos of the ladies and the park.
What's really crazy about the flea market is that on two sides (Fulton & Hayes Streets), the vendors and shoppers are crowded on narrow sidewalks. It reminds me of being at an art show on opening night. It is hard to look at stuff because there is such a crowd. Luckily one street (Steiner) is closed off for two blocks, so it's easier to look at things and shop. I know you will enjoy the pictures, as I've included a little bit of everything.
