Yesterday was an astonishingly beautiful day in San Francisco. We were on a quick mission to Huntington Square to the "secret" open house at 1170 Sacramento Street. Which was just as swell a building as we thought it might be. The condo itself is grand, grandmotherly, and priced to sell. But what really knocks us out every time we're here is the amazing variety and texture of architectural styles around the park and the surrounding vistas. Everything from a Gothic Cathedral to the Transamerica Tower with English Cottages and Streamline Moderne and everything else in between. And that was what we could see from just one corner of the park. Plus shoals of tourists.
