The Transamerica Pyramid at 600 Montgomery Street is a 48-story postmodern building and the second-tallest skyscraper in the San Francisco skyline.

The building looks great from a distance but up close, it's actually pretty ugly. Sadly it's an office building so you can't enter and visit, but it's only worth viewing from a distance anyway.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
