On an overcast day in 1996, surrounded by a mob of raucous, screeching denizens, David Letterman stood atop San Francisco’s Filbert Street. Beside him, stood a giant, refrigerator-sized crate of watermelons; below him, one of the city’s steepest descents wearily loomed. With a guttural cry — “Reeeelease the melons!” — the Late Show host unleashed the latch: down came tumbling, much to the dismay of local residents, a green and red cascade of hundreds of fruits, each jettisoning down the 65-foot, 31% grade as if propelled by rocket force. The stunt was not over. Once the carnage had settled, basketballs, candy, and 250,000 multi-colored bouncy balls followed suit. (This last stunt would later be recreated for a famous 2010 Sony ad .) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj0uvl5kbhw). This is the steepest drivable grade in the city. It is a 31.5% grade and it is one-way down only. The sidewalks are so steep, they have steps. Great place to bring visitors when driving around the city. I love the look in their eyes when you pull up at the top and stop. Cache is magnetic.
