Bay seniors not intimidated by the idea of ascending 163 stairs (they’re builttiles1 with no-slip tiles) are invited to climb the 16th Avenue Staircase in the Inner Sunset at 16th and Moraga. Each riser is embedded with mosaic panels of birds, animals and fish and closer to the top, the moon and stars, all in a swirling Art Nouveau-style. When you reach the summit keep climbing to Grandview Park for a wide-screen view of the Sunset and, on fogless days, the mighty Pacific.
