"Little Alley Near One of the Most Famous Hills in the World"
Troy Alley is on lower Nob Hill off of Hyde Street. It is near one of the most famous hills in the world and it is a very steep one. Troy Alley isn't steep though and it is a little alley just like its name denotes. There are entrances to apartments on it. It is fun for a little walk and turn around if you're taking the dog out for a spin. There are bakeries, restaurants and stores nearby. A few nice images of Troy Alley can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/10995714@N07/1565367791. Cable cars run nearby that will take you downtown and to the waterfront.
