For this week's Scenes of the City we tour a historical gem in San Francisco's Portola District. Overgrown and falling apart, the 'hood's old rose nursery is one of those places that reaps its magic from its state of decay. Full of brambles, broken glass, and old nursery tools, the greenhouse takes up an entire city block. See it on Google maps here.
This week, we take you to a little-known forested pocket of the city. The idyllic Macondray Lane is a wooded pedestrian path on the south-eastern side of Russian Hill in San Francisco.
Though it's just a breath away, most Bay Areans have never been to Angel Island.
Were you lucky enough to attend our Giants' opening day at AT&T Park?
