Wilderness Press :: Walking :: Stairway Walks in San Francisco, 7ed
Stairway Walks in San Francisco, 7ed
Stairway Walks in San Francisco, 7ed 
Hundreds of public stairways traverse San Francisco’s 42 hills, exposing incredible vistas while connecting colorful, unique neighborhoods, and veteran guide Adah Bakalinsky loves them all. Her updated Stairway Walks in San Francisco explores well-known and clandestine corridors from Lands End to Bernal Heights while sharing captivating architectural, historical, pop culture, and horticultural notes along the way.

This revised and expanded edition has been thoroughly updated and includes two additional walks, new maps, and new color photographs. The two new walks presented are: "The Blue Greenway Walking, a new history," which follows the Embarcadero and weaves along the present day contour of the Bay into the future parklands and new neighborhood of San Francisco; and "Jazz Takes A Walk" in the Sunnyside neighborhood where the undulating geology of San Francisco invites one to hear the dance in the walk.

A comprehensive appendix lists every one of the City's 600-plus public stairways. Long-term residents and tourists alike have used the book for over 25 years to adventurously uncover San Francisco’s unexpected details.

About Adah Bakalinsky
Author Adah Bakalinsky is the queen of San Francisco's majestic, quirky, and quotidian stairways. Walkier nonpareil and veteran guide, she explores the hidden corridors and cul-de-sacs of San Francisco, charting neighborhood changes by gathering stories from residents, gardeners, and shopkeepers.

She says:"The light of San Francisco was the one compelling feature of the landscapes that intrigued and provoked me to search out different neighborhoods to see the differences in the changing light."

Bakalinsky has lived in San Francisco and walked its paths and stairways for many years, and has been a full-time resident since 1973. She estimates she has walked 15,000 miles in the City since that time. She has been the author of Stairway Walks in San Francisco since the first edition was published in 1984 by Lexicos Press.
