San Francisco’s North Beach: Bakeries, Scenic Vistas, and Beatnik History in City’s Little Italy
From its cafés serving especially strong espresso to its bakeries selling cannoli and focaccia, North Beach has held to its Italian heritage since fishers from Genoa immigrated to the area more than a century ago. Sandwiched between Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach centers on Washington Square park, which abuts the Saints Peter and Paul Church. To find the epicenter of the neighborhood’s noticeable beatnik influence, walk about three blocks south to City Lights Bookstore. The independent bookstore and publisher has remained a symbol of San Francisco’s literary scene and progressive politics since the 1950s, when it was a hangout of Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac.
To the east is Telegraph Hill, a primarily residential enclave with one of the city’s most popular vistas. From Washington Square, head east and keep climbing up. At the top, you’ll reach Coit Tower, a 210-foot monument that many have described as resembling a giant fire-hose nozzle (though that was not the designer’s intent). Take the elevator to the tower’s observation deck to be rewarded with panoramic views including the Golden Gate Bridge to the west, Alcatraz Island to the north, and the San Francisco skyline to the south.
