San Francisco Quick Guide
San Francisco. Iconic representations of "The City by the Bay" abound. Cable cars. Chinatown - the most famous in all the country. The Golden Gate Bridge. The Painted Ladies - a half-dozen painstakingly restored Victorian row houses oft-depicted in tourism ads and post cards.
The City of San Francisco literally rose from the ashes following the infamous earthquake and fire of 1906 that nearly demolished the entire city. Today, this chic, urbane metropolis adds a European flair to the northern coast of California and serves as a gateway to the western US. Internationally, San Francisco is a financial powerhouse in the business world, and is home to several Fortune 500 companies, with an economy driven by business, finance, real estate, tourism and trade.
San Francisco's City Hall is located at 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Pl. and is open to the public Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. San Francisco also maintains a citywide 311 customer service center to help residents access many city departments and services.
