Did that shot start as a wider shot and then push in? Maybe there were other clues.
Sue, you are right. The scene began with a wider shot and the bay in the background.
There is also a church on the left of the following scene.
Google "San Francisco church" with images leads to:

San Francisco, CA 94118-4267

University of San Francisco
2130 Fulton Street
San Francisco, CA 94117

I also went to the Coit tower in this scene. It was a wonderful SF+KR tour!
