Now: Cuts through several neighborhoods, including Lower Haight, Alamo Square, Pacific Heights, and Marina. Both a north-south traffic throughway, and a kaleidoscopic mix of dining, grocery, and merchant fronts serving each neighborhood.
Then: Divisadero Street, named for its former function as a divider between the city of San Francisco and the Presidio.
How To Get There: Divisadero is a long, multi-neighborhood street, so may be reached from many directions. An easy way to start at the south end is to turn on to Divisadero from Haight Street, at the west end of the Lower Haight. It is also two blocks east of the Panhandle, or one block west of Alamo Square.
