Open any guidebook to San Francisco, and you'll find a description of North Beach. Justifiably so. At he center of Broadway and Columbus, North Beach spreads out from the Bay to the bottom of Telegraph Hill, and features authentic Italian cuisine, the spiritual home of the Beat movement, and boisterous nightlife.
There's a live-and-let-live attitude that prevails here. While tourists can be spotted peering into their guidebooks at Columbus and Broadway, and the intersection of Columbus and Kearny resembles a frat house party on the weekends, just a block away, the real neighborhood begins. Houses are perched on the quiet streets that make the precarious climb up Telegraph Hill, offering heart-stopping views for those lucky enough to live here. And the authentic North Beach can still be found in the neighborhood haunts: Tosca, a bar that favors opera lovers; Cafe Trieste the best place to get an espresso; and City Lights, the famed independent bookstore and publisher of Alan Ginsberg's Howl. Some of the best shopping in all of San Francisco can be found in the boutiques along Grant Street. And for those who seek it out, there's plenty of authentic Italian dining and delis, a heritage of the wave of immigrants who arrived here from Liguria, Turin, and Lombardy in the 1920s and 30s.
As for the beach, that's long gone. Once the waters of the bay lapped up against Taylor and Francisco Street, but today that waterfront has long since been replaced by 19th century landfill, known now as the Barbary Coast.
