An inside look at San Francisco's Chinatown


SAN FRANCISCO - Behind Chinatown's gild storefronts, dim sum joints and memento shops are well-known stories - regularly unpleasant ones - of civil rights violations, bigotry and public housing struggles. These are some of the tales Wendell Lin spun on last Saturday.
The 20-year-old guide is one of the high-school and college students who guide Chinatown Alleyway Tours, a two-hour glimpse of the otherwise noisy neighborhood's quieter corners. The program is sponsored by a home nonprofit that works to progress residents' quality of life.

Be a tourist in San Francisco


The World agrees. To trip the city by the Golden Gate and not jump aboard a cable car for at least one cling-clanging, hill-climbing ride will surely be equal to visiting the Louvre in Paris and skipping the Mona Lisa. That done considers the F line in San Francisco.
The F line consists of classic trolleys rescued from the dustbins of the world by a devoted, non-profit group of about 1,200 streetcar lovers. Lovingly spruced into mint condition and given to the San Francisco Municipal Railway, 20 trolleys - with others are waiting in the wings for renovation - rotate in frequently scheduled service.
