United States: San Francisco’s Financial District

The old and the new in San Francisco’s Financial District

San Francisco is a city of distinctive neighborhoods. Each area of the city has it own character and its own appeal. As in all cities, some districts are harder to love than others. San Francisco’s Financial District, with its shaded streets between its tall buildings won’t win a casual popularity contest. But if you look closer, the Financial District is more interesting than it deserves to be. Amongst the modern steel and glass monoliths are remnants of the post 1906 earthquake rebuild. The older buildings, the Neo-gothic high-rises and ornate bank buildings of the 1920’s, elegantly hold their place amongst the modern buildings. Oddly, in San Francisco’s Financial District, the old and the new look as if to belong together.
