A look toward downtown San Francisco from the funky and rather GLBT-popular neighborhood of Bernal Heights
. This photo is taken from Bernal Heights Park
, a mostly bald twin-peaked promontory that forms the neighborhood's northern boundary (here's an aerial view
). Walk a couple of blocks south, and you'll find Cortland Avenue, which is lined with offbeat, slighly hipster-esque cafes, shops, and neighborhood businesses. To reach Bernal Heights Park from downtown, you have a few options, but it's easiest to head south on Mission Street, turn left (east) onto Cortland, and then turn left onto Anderson Street and follow it to the park
, where you'll find a path to the very top.
