Well the Ocean Took My Baby

The Mechanics Institute Library, located at 57 Post Street in San Francisco, is the oldest library on the West Coast. It was started in 1854. Inside this spectacular library is a stunning spiral staircase definitely worth exploring. Inside you will find this hidden gem of a staircase. Try not to make eye contact with the security guard and just start walking right up the stairs like you know where you're going.
