Walking the Streets of downtown San Francisco

We took a couple days to walk around downtown San Francisco. Our hotel, Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel, was close to the intersection of Market St. and 5th St. so everything was close by from the San Francisco Shopping Center to Union Square.
Here's a picture of what I saw:

Most of the buildings were that old style look as you can see on the left. Most cars were fairly old like the one you see infront. Without snow and salt, cars last a long time.
There were so many expense brand name stores on the streets. Here's a brand many of my friends will recognize:

Paul Frank used to be so popular a few years ago. I think their money and crab are cute. Simple and good looking.
We walked a bit further up past Union Square and into China Town

It's a bit like Toronto's China town but a lot cleaner, less grocery stores, more geared to tourist with jewellery, and longer but only 1 street. There was a lot of fake gold and jade for sale. I prefer toronto pacific mall with its gadgets and stuffed toys.
