Tourists Break Into Closed Alamo Square Park to Snap Photos

In the immortal words of Stephanie Tanner, "How rude!"

Our friends over at Hoodline have word that tourists have turned into scofflaws by breaking into the fenced off area of Alamo Square Park to take pics next to San Francisco's most famous row of houses. The gall!

If you recall, the park closed earlier this month for much-needed repairs, with plans to reopen in nine months. The park has been fenced off to keep people out, but that hasn't stopped some entitled tourists from breaking the law willy-nilly.

Check it out:


Clearly the siren song that is the Painted Ladies (crudely known as "the Full House homes") is too powerful to resist. What's not so irresistible is how much this could cost the photo-snapping lawbreakers: SFPD can fine you a $400 misdemeanor trespassing violation ticket, plus $250 court fees, should you get caught.

Anyway, here's some fun evidence of people with blatant disregard for Parks and Rec law.
