The vertiginous slopes of Russian Hill are lined with a mix of classic San Francisco Victorian mansions, expensive apartments, French Chateau piles, and Mid-Century Modern high rises. These views were snapped along a rampart at Taylor between Vallejo and Green Street. I'm standing on a stone outcrop in a favorite pocket park dedicated to Ina Coolbrith.

The farthest residential high rise is a famous Eichler building with a few famous occupants. The whole neighborhood is fairly lux but is only six blocks or so from my place, a decidedly un-lux 'hood down the hill.

I've noticed you write a lot of great content about your passions and life in the Bay Area. I’m working for a new start-up called HeyLets and we’re trying to get people excited about doing what you do. We want our users to rediscover their city through mini-recommendations from people with similar interests and hopefully pay it forward. I was wondering, would you be interested in sharing some of your positive experiences in your community with us? We'd love to hear what you have to say and help you promote your blog.
Drop me a line if you’re interested in more info: adam@heylets.com
Thanks for your time and keep up the good work!
