Havens Place. This dead-end lane starts on the west side of Leavenworth, just north of the corner of Union and Leavenworth. Walk up a steep set of stairs to find this urban gem. Where the walk splits, take the left lane. The right one is privately owned. The gardens are cultivated by the neighbors on this very private, yet public street. Less known than Macondray Lane, this is an exceptional find. Armistead Maupin lived in an apartment on this lane while writing Tales of the City.
