About City

San Francisco is a major city in California, the centrepiece of the Bay Area, well-known for its liberal community, hilly terrain, Victorian architecture, scenic beauty, summer fog, and great ethnic and cultural diversity. It is uniquely picturesque city, whose scenic attractions include the largest cultivated urban park in the country, Golden Gate Park. Its notoriously steep streets, traversed by the famous cable cars, are home to a remarkably diverse ethnic population. San Francisco is situated at the tip of a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the San Francisco Bay on the east, and the Golden Gate, a narrow marine passageway between San Francisco and Marin County to the north.  Before it was renamed to San Francisco, this small city by the bay was called Yerba Buena. Yerba Buena means, "Good herb" in Spanish. It was founded in 1776, but renamed in 1846. Portsmouth Square in Chinatown was the location of the public square in Yerba Buena.

It has the second largest Chinatown outside of Asia. It's also the oldest in North America. It is around one mile long by one and a half miles wide. More than 100,000 people live in Chinatown. It's the most densely populated neighbourhood in the city. The city is built on more than 50 hills. Many believe it only has 7 or 9 hills, but there are a total of more than 50 named hills. Some of the most well-known are Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Telegraph Hill, and Twin Peaks. A few of the lesser known ones are Golden Mine Hill, Excelsior Heights, and Tank Hill. SF is home to the largest competition of American wines in the world. In addition to loving wine, the locals also love independent films. SF is home to more than 50 film festivals each year. Some are large international festivals. Others are smaller with a much focused film offering such as the Greek Film Festival, the Jewish Film Festival, and the American Indian Film Festival.

We are eagerly waiting to meet you at San Francisco, California for the MedChem & MTDD 2018 Meeting
