keyne tipped me off recently that even though 22nd Street had lost its title, San Francisco had a new contender for the steepest street in the world, a newly paved block of Bradford Street in Bernal Heights.
I happened to walk by it today, and yep, it sure is steep.
I didn't have any measuring implements with me, so I don't know if it really is the steepest in the world, but if my picture is accurate, that segment is about a 33.5% grade, which beats 22nd Street and is in the same ballpark as Baldwin Street in Dunedin.
It's also notable for being a two-way street, since it (currently) has a dead end at the top, so cars manage to get up it as well as down it.
