Great pictures. Somehow it doesn't surprise me that many of the older buildings are now dominated by stores, and not even department stores as a matter of fact.

Judging by the comfortable clothing everyone is in, I'm guessing the temps were quite comfortable. I'm jealous (I hate the 90s and high humidity for 5 months straight in Houston). Very little grit as well which is exactly how I like it. It all looks godo to me.

Yup, I think I read somewhere that San Francisco has the lowest average daily summer high temperature in the continental US. Something like 67 degrees. Of course its also about 67 degrees in the winter too

It's around 72 in the summer and 55 in the winter for daytime highs. Still nice and moderate. :p

Amazing city!! If only more cities west of the Appalachian Mountains and south of the Mason-Dixon Line looked like this. But I guess that when a city looks this great, it costs a lot to live in it. I sorta see a correlation between greatness and cost of living (i.e. NYC, SF and Boston). Ok, but atleast more U.S. downtowns and central-parts of cities could like a bit more like this.

I think he's talking about the part of market street everyone in the Bay Area knows to avoid. There's a section on market street where it's filled with drug dealers, crime, and aggressive homeless panhandlers.
