Local Hero/Reporter Shames Alamo Square ‘Painted Ladies’ Tour Buses

Like Garbo, the “Full House” homes want to be left alone

Bay Area treasure Stanley Roberts noticed that, even though it is now illegal, tour buses are still circling Alamo Square so that gawking tourists can snap pics of the Full House homes. And he isn’t having any of it.

In classic Robertsian journalistic fashion, the KRON 4 reporter goes in for his signature covert cinematic shaming.

Also, as SFist points out, Roberts "takes a minute to shame everyone for not knowing that the exterior shot of the house where the Tanners of Full House actually lived is up on Broderick Street in an entirely different neighborhood."


Speaking which, said Broderick house, which is downright stunning inside, is currently on the market for a cool $4.1 million.

The ban was implemented in 2013 in an effort to curb traffic in the area, which has been a problem ever since Stephanie Tanner uttered her first "How rude!" And vehicle with eight or more passengers isn’t allowed to circle the picturesque park. Alas, that doesn’t mean they have stopped. Enter Roberts much-needed and joyous shaming of the dastardly tour buses.
