Best Dashiell Hammett Haunt San Francisco 2007 - Building at 891 Post

OK, Dashiell Hammett fans, we know you can never get enough. Some of us see Sam Spade, the famed author's famous detective, around most every corner — or at least at the spots immortalized in The Maltese Falcon. There's John's Grill (at 63 Ellis), where Spade loved to chow down, and the splendid Hunter-Dulin Building (at Montgomery and Sutter) where Spade kept an office. But perhaps no locale is more Hammett-friendly than the apartment house at 891 Post St., where the author lived in the late '20s before briefly moving to Nob Hill and then on to New York. A historical marker erected at the building a few years back declares that Hammett's apartment, modeled on Spade's in Falcon, "was on the northwest corner of the fourth floor." But don't go bugging the tenant.
