From Holladay in east Bernal Heights, Joy’s foot: 1
The Rutledge stairs start up from Holladay. There was no gate this time but it still shows up on Google Maps.
Rutledge up to Mullen: 2 thru 14
Construction on a mew residence was nearly completed: 15, 16
What it replaced, THENs: 17, 18
Continuing up to Brewster: 19 thru 22
The blue house at the top of the stairs used to be yellow: 23, 24
Brewster at Rutledge: 25 thru 29
Crossing Brewster to Wolfe Lane Community Garden and Miller/Dogpatch Memorial Garden. Google Naps shows two garden names. The north strip is Wolfe and the larger section to the south, with the stairs up and the benches, tables and chairs, is Miller/Dogpatch.
Miller-Dogpatch is an open stairgarden and unlike last visit to Bernal Heights Community Garden didn’t have to worry about being locked inside.
Up through the south garden to the top: 30 thru 49
The Nice Neighborhood Garden sign at the top, Franconia, has been here for years: 50
Franconia’s present stairgarden dates from 2004.
THENs from just before the transformation: 51, 52, 53
A THEN of the same area from around 1972: 54
NOWs: 55 thru 65
Franconia: 66, 67
Franconia meets Esmeralda and Peralta and Esmeralda steps descend: 68 thru 78
Up Mayflower from Franconia to Peralta. You’d think the steps starting up at the side of a residence belonged to the home. But this block is a rough trail, including some steps alongside a residence on the north side.
So this is actually a through “street.” But though the higher block I ventured partway down another day didn't seem to run thru, it is listed as a trail on Google Maps as well. Mayflower is a strange “street.”’
Esmeralda up to Peralta on Mayflower: 79. 80, 81
There goes the neighborhood…new residences along Powhattan: 83
