    Amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge! I live an hour from SF and have never seen those stairs. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Wow I had no idea these existed! What a great way to brighten up some dull steps, get the community and artists working together to create beautiful art!

      Hi Anna, totally my feeling. I saw pictures of how rundown and shady the Lincoln garden steps looked just a few years ago. When they are unkept they attract crime and when they’re so pretty, they attract art appreciators. So its a win-win 🙂

    I love this post! So creative. One of my favorite things about San Francisco is the great street art that is so abu can’t throughout the city! Fabulous share!

      Thanks Michelle. You’re so right about San Francisco incorporating art in urban living. For example the Mission neighborhood is just out of this world.

    These are all so beautiful! I love that the communities came together to push for it too. I think actually came across one of these last year while visiting my sister/brother-in-law, I just sent them the link.

      Hi Dorothy,
      That’s so nice! I would have loved to just run into them and be surprised. It happened to us in mission district and I loved it. I hope sister and brother-in-law love it too

    Ohhhh I love the one with the butterfly. I had no idea this was in San Fransisco and I totally missed it when I visited. Gives me a reason to go back now!

      I’ve lived here most of my life and I hadn’t heard of them because there is so much to to see. Do visit again and I’m sure you’ll find many more hidden treasures.

    I’ve been to San Francisco but I’ve never seen these hidden stairs. They are so gorgeous! I love how the mosaics create this incredible pattern on the steps. I am a big fan of succulent gardens as well.

      I totally agree… It’s so amazing!
      What a collaboration it must have been between artists and the community – including kids, moms, dads, friends! It must have been a huge endevour for the project leads. Hats off to them.

    I didn’t know there were so many of these in SF! I love the incredible level of detail. They must have taken a long time to make!

    These steps are an absolute delight. I love the giant poppy! It is so wonderful to see such a simple idea transform a community’s spirit and give them a common area to be proud of.

      Hi Rosie, you’re so right. I love SF traditions of art in urban settings. More importantly, I love how these projects bring together the community – during the creation and for years thereafter.
      It’s even more important these days with large numbers of new and busy tech workers. I hope it helps strengthen the community’s culture.

    Crazy, I’ve been to San Fran several times and never seen these steps! Looks like a missed out! I don’t even think I went to Lincoln Park which is a shame!

      Do cheer up… most people I know have lived here for decades and have not heard of any of these 🙂
      I hope you’ll visit again. If you enjoy urban art, do check out the mission district too.
