Historical Site in Chinatown
Washington and Kearny Sts
San Francisco, CA 94108
Located smack dab in the center of Chinatown, Portsmouth Square is a collection of several commemorative plaques, statues, and historical sites. Formerly the site of a Mexican Pueblo named Yerba Buena, Portsmouth Square was the site where the first American flag was hoisted. Today visitors can watch locals practice Tai Chi, play chess, and occasionally gather for weddings and other events. Most likely, however, visitors will appreciate Portsmouth Square for one of its more mundane qualities--it houses a four-story parking garage, from which you can begin your tour of Chinatown.
