On my walk from Union Square through Chinatown and up and beyond the Transamerica Pyramid, I took a few photos. It is a pretty distinctive building.

Took this very near the intersection of Sacramento and Stockton. Wished I would have gotten the camera ready before the plane flew beyond the building as it looked even closer when it was seen on the right side of the building. The plane must have departed SFO I imagine.

Here, I am on the border with Chinatown I believe. I think she has room for a couple more bags of stuff.

Ever since 11 Sep 2001, this is all the further into the building you can get as a member of the general public. It looked like there were at least three separate entrance areas like this to the building.

Can you see the top of the building from here? Yeah, me neither.

This taken just a little North of the Transamerica Pyramid building. This street is on the same grade as stairs. Might be a great workout just trying to ride a bike to the top of this section.

This section of street has been converted into a garden with steps and things. It is a short but scenic trip up those stairs.
