[Full stairway listing]


The Green Street Stairs cut through what would otherwise be an unpassable cliff to provide access to Sansome and Montgomery Streets.  Two separate staircases rise to meet halfway and then separate again as they head to the upper landing.

The stairs afford a generous view of downtown San Francisco and the Transamerica Pyramid.  The upper end of the Green Street Stairs provide a nice view of Coit Tower.

A plaque affixed to the bottom of the stairs dedicates the surrounding gardens to Don Terner, a bay-area affordable housing activist. 

As with many stairs on Telegraph Hill, the concrete stairs are starting to show signs of neglect.  The eastern side of the staircase has the worst damage and it is a good idea to watching your footing when using the stairs.
