Ascending from the top of the Broadway steps, Florence has around 54 steps. The short street comes out at Vallejo: 5, 6
20 steps for the unique old double stairway down to Jones from Vallejo: 7, 8

Entering Michelangelo Playground at its entrance below Greenwich, between Jones and Leavenworth: 10, 11

Next, Havens off Leavenworth. It doesn’t run thru to Hyde. 74 for the steps under the tree to the walkway. 75 down again from the upper walk: 13 thru 19
41 steps for Macondray Lane if you count about seven widely spaced ones on the rough brick walkway just before the wood steps on the east side down to Taylor: 20 thru 25
Climbing up steep Taylor where at the top, Ina Coolbrith Park is across from the Vallejo stairway: 26, 27
Next to the park Fallon Place descends.
Noticed some of the original steps (old pink concrete) have been replaced with newer concrete ones. Posted before re a book written before all the boring-looking newer condos turned this stairway into a dead-end. Below is from a former post, this from a hike in January 2013:
“I remember Fallon before it got condo-ized. … library book with a title something like "The San Francisco Street of 80 Steps." Not sure of the exact title; the last time I checked it out was several years ago. Googling it didn't get me any results; don't know the author or when it was published. Probably out of print. It's a short, nostalgic personal history of life on this stairway written by a woman who lived there before the present buildings were constructed. I think at least some of the original steps are still there though.”
Counted 78 steps this time. So this paperback has apparently disappeared - like the old Sausalito stairways book I’d like to find.
One old home is still here. This one got saved. For the stairway when it was being torn up back in the 1970s my Facebook album for Russian Hill shows the old wood walk and the section of old pink steps that have now been replaced with newer ones. Five old pix here; if only I’d taken a lot more.
Fallon down from Taylor: 28, 29, 30, 31
An old wood-railed stairway on Nob Hill up from Washington, Priest. Cable cars run along Washington here. Long ago residents had a view east: pic 32.
