One of the things I've always liked about the four-block stretch of Polk Street from Geary to Bush (Polk Gulch to old-timers) are the string of Christmas lights strung across three side-streets that come on regularly every evening, 365 times a year.
The first are at Cedar Street
the second at Hemlock
while the third are at Fern Street.
I have no idea when these lights were put up, or why they were never taken down, but if they weren't there, I'd miss them. I've gotten used to seeing them brighten up Polk Street every night.
