Italy ain’t on Kearny Street
Switch for a map of China
Walking around San Fran today, I noticed a curious little sign suggesting that nearby was the country of Italy. Now as I’ve never been to Italy, but rumor has it that my Great-Grand-dad was Italian, I wanted to check out the familial roots.
I turned right on Kearny and kept following it, expecting to find a land of Olive Oil and Coliseums. I only found more hills and more streets till I came yet again to my nemesis – San Fran’s “kill ya in the morning” stairs.
Would whoever though up that silly little joke, please take down the Italy tease? As the map later told me, it’s not possible to get to Italy via Kearny Street. Chinatown maybe, but not Italy.
