Top of the Mark bar on the top of the Mark Hopkins Hotel on Russian Hill. You can see everything from up there.
Coit Tower. Just down the hill, unmarked is 202 Green Street. It's where Philo T. Farnsworth invented television.
On September 7, 1927, Farnsworth's image dissector camera tube transmitted its first image, a simple straight line, to a receiver in another room of his laboratory at 202 Green Street in San Francisco. Pem Farnsworth recalled in 1985 that her husband broke the stunned silence of his lab assistants by saying, "There you are — electronic television!"
