I've never been there (except to change planes once), but that hilly street looks like San Francisco.

Cheating ;-) I looked up "Ellis Brooks Chevrolet" and confirmed that it is SanFran.

Even though I live in England, during the last 12 years or so I have been to San Francisco many, many times and lived there for 14 months 89/90 and hope to reutrn to live and work some time in the future, I had a great time and have driven past this place on a number of ocasions, but the hills did give it away.

As Dinah Shore (who?) used to warble on the old TV, "See Ellis Brooks today for your Chevrolet--corner of Bush and Van Ness". (To which old Ellis would add in his down-home twang, "And I'll give you five pounds of Hills Brothers coffee absolutely free!...")
Anyway, that is most certainly San Francisco with the mighty BofA building on the left. Take it from a native. :)

In case there was any doubt, you're all correct! I love that reference to the Dinah Shore / Ellis Brooks commerical.

I shot this while doing a wedding at a local church. Ran out into the street in between pulses of traffic.

What a gorgeous city, no doubt about it.

I was going to respond with San Francisco but only because of the hills!

My bet is SF, even before I saw the responses...Anyone got a shot of Lombard Street? Would love to see that, especially an aerial one!
