Lombard Street from above

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and pilot NGreyTravels created this beautiful drone video of what has been billed as the "crookedest street in the world" - Lombard Street in San Francisco.  Actually, the moniker applies to just a single block of this major east-west thoroughfare: the western side of Russian Hill.    With its eight hairpin curves here, the road's design was intended to reduce its grade at a time (the 1920's) when motor vehicles had less effective engines and brakes.  It's one of the city's most iconic sights.
