Like San Francisco? Like its various landmarks? Agree that the city just wouldn’t have the same character without them?
And have you ever thought of the landmarks themselves as characters?
Even if the last one isn’t true (or, heck, even if the others aren’t true either, and you enjoy personifications of things in general), I can presume you might just be interested in the San Franthropomorphism 2012 Calendar!
It includes one strange artist’s (read: my) interpretations of what the Painted Ladies, Alcatraz, the F-Market streetcars, the Ferry Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, City Hall, Sutro Tower, the cable cars, Coit Tower, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Bay Bridge, and the Transamerica Pyramid might look like if they were humans instead of structures.

San Francisco Calendar of landmarks as characters, pretty neat
Why yes, I’m reblogging myself via someone else, just to say that I still have these, and now that it’s 2012, they’re only $10!
Even if you don’t care much for actual calendar grid stuff (though this one includes a bunch of significant dates in San Francisco history), it’s still twelve pages of drawings of personified landmarks, printed on good quality paper. I have not uploaded most of the pages anywhere online!
