Beach is probably San Francisco's most iconic neighborhood and
traditionally home to the city's Italian population. It is a small 30
block area that runs along Columbus Avenue and is bounded by Chinatown,
Russian Hill, Fisherman's Wharf and Telegraph Hill. The boundaries of
North Beach are, however, rather ambiguous and tend to change frequently
based on the whim of the residents and the real estate market.
Consequently, it's better to think of North Beach as a state of mind
rather than a point on the map.
The alleyways of San Francisco's North Beach are too often overlooked. In Rough Edges: The Alleyways of North Beach Dede Tisone provides an artists' perspective on these hidden treasures. Harvey Hunt supplements the art work with a bit of the hidden lore of one of San Francisco best known neighborhoods.
