Now: The rich mix of cafes, bars, and shops along the upper section of Market Street comprise an honorary part of the Castro by proximity.
Then: Aside from different color paint, Beck's Motor Lodge looks very much the same as it did in the 1950s. See related postcards.
How To Get There: This is the western section of Market Street just before it goes uphill toward Twin Peaks. You can get here via any of the Market streetcars (F-line), or from the Muni station at Castro.
