Who lived here?

Samuel Dashiell Hammett (May 27, 1894—January 10, 1961) was an American author of hardboiled detective novels and short stories. Among the enduring characters he created are Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon), Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man), and the Continental Op (Red Harvest and The Dain Curse). In addition to the significant influence his novels and stories had on film, Hammett 'is now widely regarded as one of the finest mystery writers of all time' and was called, in his obituary in the New York Times, 'the dean of the... 'hard-boiled' school of detective fiction'. Samuel Dashiell Hammett lived in this apartment while he was finishing writing The Maltese Falcon.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Neighborhood: NOB HILL. It is one of San Francisco's most desirable destinations, renowned for its city landmarks and the famous hotels that border Huntington Park. For those who explore further, it also reveals unexpected facets. In addition to its swanky character, the area is influenced by the diverse personalities of the downtown neighborhoods that surround it, making it an intriguing place to visit.

              You are just steps away from the many cafes, pubs, Italian restaurants, theatres, bookstores and shops of the Italian Quarter. It is the perfect gateway in San Francisco, yet close to all the entertainment. Washington Square Park, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, the Financial District are all within walking distance. The location is easily accessible by car, bus or cable car.
