Join veteran tour leader Monika Trobits for an exploration of the heart of the Union Square area, its development and its transformation over the last century and a half. This walking tour includes the works of prominent architects and local artists plus a literary landmark. Learn about films made at the Square, a 1920s-scandal at a nearby hotel and “crib alley.” Discover the area’s connections to Dashiell Hammett as we wind our way down to Market Street.
Monika Trobits is a long-time, local docent/guide, historian, and published author of non-fiction works about San Francisco ( Her presentations are engaging, comprehensive, witty and as historically accurate as she knows how to make them. She leads visitors and residents alike on enjoyable and insightful journeys through the city, highlighted by vintage photographs and stories about old San Francisco. Please note that her tours require mobility, i.e., for small to moderate hills and stairs.
