Stepping out of the Castro station into the plaza, one immediately sees the Harvey Milk memorial, Gilbert Baker's rainbow flag, and at the top of the stairs, the Castro Theater sign. You know you have arrived in the Castro!
Important historic center of the old Gay Community in San Francisco, but a failure in urban design. Come for the history and the interesting shopping and dining around, plus some beautiful houses. But this plaza is just ho-hum and in need of a make-over.

Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
