pouring out

San Francisco's City Hall is one of the country's most magnificent Beaux-Arts buildings. It is an enormous building, occupying two city blocks. Its central dome - based on the Dôme des Invalides in Paris - is the fifth largest dome in the world. Beneath is the Rotunda, a spectacular space with a magnificent grand staircase with steps pouring out like syrup.
