San Francisco’s Leaning Houses of Pisa

San Francisco's Lombard Street, the Most Crooked Street in the World

San Francisco's Lombard Street, the Most Crooked Street in the World

SUBMITTED BY: Charley Ferrari    LOCATION: San Francisco, California  (2007)

The classic 1966 Batman TV series with Adam West introduced us to the mystique of the canted angle, which conveys chaos and confusion. But what does a reverse canted angle (when the earth is canted and you uncant it) mean?

No, these aren’t the Leaning Houses of Pisa. Nor is it the aftermath of a routine San Francisco earthquake.

Charley’s just having fun with one of the steepest roads in the world, the touristy Lombard Street in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. MMMMMM… Makes us long for some tilted Ghirardelli chocolate!
