    Coit Tower

    August 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Coit Tower was built in 1933; Lillian Coit was the benefactor for this project costing $75K at the time. It is dedicated to the firefighters of the city along with a statue in Washington Square Park. It is Art Deco in style and the murals were painted in 1983 to commemorate the 50th anniversary. The views from the grounds offer a 360 view of San Fran through a lush park. A sign alerts us to possible sightings of coyote in the evenings. Amazing to think of them in the middle of this city.

    Outside we are fascinated by the bubblers designed for adults, kids and dogs. There's also a self-cleaning toilet in the grounds. You have to wait for cleaning to occur after each use, or the door won't re-shut.
