Something Crooked This Way Comes

The reward at the end of the insanely steep Lombard street, is the world famous section of the road near Hyde and Leavenworth Streets. Eight hairpin turns come one after another.



I originally thought this was designed with wacky game shows in mind. Turns out it is meant to make the steepness of the road more manageable for vehicles and pedestrians. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s one pretty street and drives up property value!
