Daydream: San Francisco’s Mosiac Staircase

Today I’m dreaming about something whimsical – San Francisco’s Secret Mosaic Staircase.  If you’ve ever wanted to find a hidden art gem in San Francisco, head to 16th and Moraga to discover The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps.  Not only will you be able to see some amazing views of the city, you’ll get to appreciate a beautiful mosaic running up 163 steps.  Inspired by the world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro, Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher joined forces, working with over 300 community volunteers for over a two and a half year period until they unveiled the project in August 2005.  I need to go on an adventure and find this!

  1. No offense, but this staircase is probably the most famous staircase in San Francisco. If you want secret staircases, you should look into the neighborhood of Bernal Heights. There they have the most staircase walks in the city. This is by far the most beautiful staircase in the city, but there are also slides and hidden stairs etc all over bernal. You should really check it out.

    • Hello there…thanks for the note! I have yet to have the chance to explore San Fran…so I look forward to checking out Bernal Heights per your suggestion. It sounds like a whimsical place! Thanks for stopping by – and if you have other places to check out…send them my way!! 🙂
