"Coit Tower" Coit Tower Tip by richiecdisc
Coit Tower, San Francisco: 139 reviews and 269 photos
Set high atop Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower offers great views of both the city proper and the San Francisco Bay. But that is only the beginning of the story. Even if the day does not warrant paying for the elevator fare to the top, there are murals by local artists inspired by Diego Rivera of the early pioneering days though reflecting strong social themes that caused great fervor at the time of their inception. Built in 1933 in the Art Deco style and funded by Lillie Hitchcock Coit in part to commemorate the city’s firefighters, the 210 foot structure crowns Pioneer Park and is readily seen from most anywhere in town or across the Bay.
