[Full stairway listing]


The Douglass Street Stairs connect the lower part of Douglass Street (below 20th) with the upper part (above Corwin).  The stairway cuts through a wall at 20th and Douglass, turns, and rises to the street above.  A small part of the stairs continue just across the intersection of Douglass and Corwin.

Several apartment buildings on either side are accessible only from paths leading away from the stairs.  Quaint gardens surround the paths and stairs.

While the bottom section of the stairs don't strike me as especially photogenic, it seems many don't agree.  Nearly every time I visit the stairs, someone is having their portrait taken while sitting on the lower portion of the staircase. 

The view from the top of the Douglass Stairs is impressive.  From the top of the stairs, turn right and head down Corwin for more views and access to one of the best public parks in San Francisco.
