But unable to stop there. Hadn’t walked the area between the Balboa Park and Daly City BARTs in a long time, some parts maybe a decade.
Attracted to certain houses and streets just above the BART trax, some in Daly City, some in San Francisco. This hill is just to the east of the DC BART station, between Cayuga Playground and DC BART, but closer to BART. If you sit at a south window you can briefly see Cayuga Playground as the train zooms by overhead.
Bepler, DC: 7, 8.
Santa Barbara, DC: 9, 10, 11
My favorite street up here is Shakespeare. On the SF side there’s a divided street with a short stairway: 12 thru 19.
De Long & Flournoy, SF: 20
De Long & Head, SF: 21
Head & Santa Barbara SF: 22, 22, 24
Rhine down to Shakespeare, DC: 25
Vendome hilltop fence, DC: 26
Some of it looks different now from when I last saw it. Not as much open space as before at the top of the hill.
For a second hike, ascending from the ”Top of the Hill Daly City” area, up from Mission on Crocker near the end of the line for the #14 Mission. At the top, winding along Crocker to the east, partly with a view down and across to San Bruno Mountain from the park’s northernmost edge before descending to a #43 bus stop in SF’s Crocker-Amazon ‘hood.
Views from Crocker Avenue, Daly City: 27 thru 32
