114. San Francisco

A 1974 photo of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe) at 906 Broadway, near Mason, at the foot of Russian Hill. The church closed in 1991 due to declining membership as the neighborhood became overwhelmingly Chinese. In 2011, the Archdiocese of San Francisco put it up for sale with an asking price of $3.5 million. If parking in front, definitely need the emergency brake.
