Fodor's Review

Threading a peaceful path through Downtown's urban towers, a fountain stream spills down the center of this monumental staircase designed by Lawrence Halprin. Its quiet beauty is reminiscent of Rome's Spanish Steps. The stream originates at the top of the stairs, where Robert Graham's nude female sculpture Source Figure stands atop a cylindrical base. If you're not inclined to walk up the 294 steps, hop aboard the escalator parallel to the stairs. Halfway up there's

a coffee shop where you can fortify yourself before tackling the remaining climb.
