The row of nearly-identical Victorian houses so often photographed with the city skyline behind them are located between 710 and 722 Steiner Street. The park on the hillside above is where the family picnic in the opening scene of the television program "Full House" was shot. Don't get too carried away trying to find that house with a red door and a fictitious address, though. Even though film magic makes it seem like the family walks into one of the row houses, the actual house shown as theirs is some distance away. You'll find out where it is in the next photo.
This scene faces east, making afternoon or evening twilight the best time to try to get your own photograph. However, the hill throws the houses into shade earlier than you might think. To get there, take Geary Blvd. west from downtown and turn left on Steiner Street. By public transportation, San Francisco MUNI bus line 21 stops right next to the park and line 5 stops a block away on McAllister Street.
