  Coit Tower
by nomadig

Coit Tower is an art deco tower erected on Telegraph Hill as memory of San Francisco earthquake firefighters. The tower was funded by Lillie Hitchcock Coit and it was completed in 1933. The tower has several murals on the first floor.

The hill itself has magnificent views to the surrounding areas, including the bay and the downtown.

You can either drive your way up there, or then take the hard path from the shore. There are a set of stairs 'Filbert Steps' from Sansome street up to Telegraph hill. The lenght of the stairs is nearly three blocks, but they are worth the burden.
