I'm a big fan of human rights, I believe in all humans deserve respect doesn't matter anything... as far as you don't hurt another human (or animal), for me, there is no problem at all. Harvey Milk Plaza is a metro station, is difficult at...More

Mr. Milk deserves a better memorial than a transit plaza reeking of urine. How about a homeless shelter for those seeking shelter there?

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.

we stayed at an ARBNB right down the street from here. It was the happening place and a great place to connect with the rest of the city. Lots to eat, shop, and see in the area.

The subway and buses let off huge numbers of people who live in this area and up the hill. It's also the arrival spot for the Castro district with lots of restaurants and bars. Always people on the street.

Has a lot of good photos and info about Milk. However, it is in a dirty underground train entrance. It is very scuzy and almost under a bridge looking structure.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
