McALLISTER TOWER - 100 McALLISTER ST.
Reverend William Taylor,
from the frontispiece of his book
Seven Years' Street Preaching
in San Francisco, California
David Seward, CFO for U.C. Hastings, kindly took me on a personal tour of the tower, including a visit to the spot which I had long coveted, but which is accessible to just a handful of people – the very top of the building, where I was able to walk around in the open air, 27 stories above the street, with the Tenderloin, Civic Center and South of Market spread out before me! Our time was limited, so I was able to take only a few photographs. If you examine them closely, you can see where some of the buildings in this blog are located. Here are some views from 27 stories up:
