Second only to the Filbert Steps in my book are the Greenwich Street Stairs. The same site that features Filbert also profiles Greenwich…and below you can enjoy my photos. I started with Coit Tower and the views there, and then worked my way down.
What I need to do is branch out next time and explore some of the many other staircases hidden away in San Francisco – full listing here. I love Sister Betty’s rating system:
***** – Outstanding stairways – Don’t leave the planet without seeing these stairs. (Both Filbert and Greenwich top this list.)
**** – Nice stairways with unique features or views.
*** – Good if you are in the neighborhood or out doing a stairwalk.
** – Not Anything Special. Stairways that you might consider if you are on stairwalk but won’t find on postcards.
* – Stairways you’ll only see if you have the misfortune of dating someone who lives near them.
