"More like an alley than a street, nothing special"

Jansen Street starts at Greenwich and ends where Lombard and Columbus connect (it touches both corners). From Greenwich St in slopes downward toward Lombard. Not a huge decline where it needs steps in the sidewalk like Kearny or parts of Vallejo, but it's probably at least a 10 degree grade.
It's made up of apartments with the exception of a garage that fixes Alfa Romeo's and Mercedes Benz cars. (their spaces goes between Columbus and Jansen). There are nearby schools and one of my favorite cafes, 901 Columbus Cafe rests at the bottom of Jansen right at Lombard & Jansen.

Because Jansen is one block off of Columbus and close to Fisherman's Wharf there are many nearby things such as dry cleaning, corner store, cafes, restaurants, and a library (within 500 feet). So there's lots to do around the area if you want to walk about 5-10 blocks. But the street itself is relatively quiet and not much to see.
  • Close to restaurants in North Beach

"A Sloping one way street"

Jansen Street is a quiet little one way street located between Lombard and Greenwich Street. There are mostly apartment complexes on this street, they are just average and not very extravagant. There are only a few houses here, but some of them have driveways, which make them more unique. This street is slightly sloped, but it is not that much of a up hill climb. This street is near one of the most famous places in San Francisco, it is the winding and beautiful Lombard Street. There are also schools nearby so it is convenient for families that have kids. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and convenience shops scattered around the area. There are also cable car and bus stops nearby for easy transportation.
