Mason, Nob Hill: 1, 2
Crossing Broadway on Mason and west uphill on Vallejo for the foot of Russian Hill’s Ina Coolbrith Park: 3 thru 6
Up the south stairway and a view down the north stairs. 119 steps up to several benches: 7 thru 33
Continuing up the south steps, 152 steps for the next row of benches. On the north side down from here to the first-bench-landing, 36 stone steps: 34 thru 58
Back up again on the south stairway to the top of the park at Taylor & Vallejo. 165 steps total: 59 thru 69
Across from the park, another stairway climbs to a minipark from Taylor: 70
Downhill now, the next stairway on this side is Fallon Place, once thru, now an up-and-back for the 77 steps (less than it used to have before the newer residences were built): 72
Broadway’s double side-stairs partway up to Jones from Taylor. This is a dead-end for vehicles with built-im benches at the top: 73, 74
Broadway down to a fenced-in community garden. 29 steps descend from Himmelman to the north dead-end of the next little alley below Himmelman, Salmon St.
Google Maps says this is the “Broadway Tunnel East Minipark.” It is above theLady Shaw Senior Center on Mason, but closer to Himmelman. At the top of the stairs was a black chair.: 76 thru 82
Back up to Himmelman, now Nob Hill: 83 thru 86
At Taylor & California is Nob Hill’s Grace Cathedral. Once again a mural has been installed on some of its stairs: 88 thru 92
The present waterfall is probably not permanent. The “clouds” mural that decorated these steps a while back wasn’t.
Crossing California, down the 191 west sidewalk steps on Taylor: 93, 94
