Best Place to See Street Art Close to a Federal Building San Francisco 2013 - 530 Turk Street

The walls in the parking lot across from the Phillip Burton Federal Building are a forest of memorable street art — put there in plain view of federal employees who'd never tolerate a tag on their pristine building, which has cameras that monitor all street-level activity. At 530 Turk, though, wild green lettering zigzags across the back wall, while the right wall has two sections of art that demand perusal: a panorama of a brown city, with large charcoal columns; and a panorama of a forest, centered around a green Buddha figure and wild gray letter tags. It takes $15 to park your car in the parking lot. It costs nothing to walk into the lot and check out the street art that's among the best in the Tenderloin.
