Waller Street at the corner of Carmelita Street.
Carmelita Street in San Francisco in April 2014.
Carmelia Street is my favorite street in San Francisco. I used to live not far from here in the Lower Haight & just a bit farther away at Alamo Square. My preferred hotel, the Metro Hotel, is very near Carmelita Street, which serves as a major pedestrian thoroughfare to & from the N Judah Muni Metro light rail train stop at the top of Duboce Park, & between the Castro & the Lower Haight. The N Judah will take you all the way from the Embarcadero to Ocean Beach. Carmelita Street is about half a block long between Waller Street & Duboce Park. There is no outlet at the Duboce Park end of the street for vehicular traffic, but a pedestrian path across the park. The 16 houses on Carmelita Street are all good examples of San Francisco Edwardian architecture from about 1900 to 1910, & all very nicely maintained. In addition, the gardens along the street are exceptionally lovely. The one fully landscaped driveway is wonderful. It serves as a parking space. We can all learn something from that.
