Where are the San Francisco Beat-Sites?

Posted to WritersAndGenres




I'm taking a trip to SF in December and have long been interested in the beats especially Kerouac... I know of a few beat hangout sites in the city - vesuvios, city lights, north beach, the sixth gallerly, and definitly plan to check them out....are there more famous sites around the bay area ? Is there some kind of map / information that describes these spots? Or perhaps a book or essay about Beats specifically in San Francisco? I would love to get a hold of something like that and if it's not out there create it myself. If you have any info lemmie know. Thanks-

Keepin' it real
