The street was designed in 1922 to address safety concerns of the steep and winding roads in the city. Today, it is a picturesque icon of San Francisco, attracting tourists from all over the world. Visitors can walk, drive or take a cable car ride down this famous street to experience the thrill of its sharp turns and stunning views of the city.
In addition to its design, Lombard Street also holds historical significance. It was named after Charles Crocker, one of the "Big Four" investors who financed the construction of the Central Pacific Railroad. Crocker's family owned the land where the street was built. Today, visitors can see the crooked street as a testament to the city's innovative design and as a symbol of the city's growth and development. Lombard Street is a must-see for any tourist visiting San Francisco.
