:: 16th Avenue Mosaic Steps ::
Out in Golden Gate Heights, above the Sunset, climbing up 163 steps on the western side of a hill, lies the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps. SF has probably 350 stairways in the city. Most are utilitarian by design. Not this one. This neighborhood project was completed in August of 2005, which galvanized over 300 neighbors to play a part in the creation, and sponsorship, of this artistic staircase.
This work was inspired by the Santa Teresa Mosaic stairs in Rio.
I definitely got a workout that afternoon having walked from the ocean all the way up to the top of the steps. But what a view you get.
