I didn’t expect this kind of colorful writing from Time, it cracked me up.
“Every great city needs its proud civic phallus — the Empire State Building, the Washington Monument, the Eiffel Tower. At best, they’re scenic lookouts; at worst, boring tourist-trap monstrosities. I’ll leave it to the architectural critics to appraise the aesthetic merits of Coit Tower, which some say resembles a fire hose nozzle.”
I’ll be visiting SF for my first time, so doing a little research on what I should do in a short window of time. Advice welcome!
