San Francisco: Telegraph Hill
Originally Goat Hill, because of the goats that lived on it, Telegraph Hill is hard to miss now with Coit Tower at its — a Art Deco 210-foot tower raised above Pioneer Park. Staircases going up Telegraph hill are surrounded by wonderful gardens maintained by the local residents, who's houses border this boardwalk, which appears to be a well kept secret as much as a place accessible to any curious visitor. Signs with street names along the stairways try to convince us against common logic that the hill did not interrupt the streets continuing on the opposite hillside.
