Two years after his death (by suicide) in 1926, a glade in a park on Russian Hill was dedicated in Sterling’s honor. The final six lines of “The Cool, Grey City of Love” are engraved on a tablet in George Sterling Glade, below the Alice Marble Courts on Greenwich Street at Hyde Street. From Hyde Street, walk downhill (west) along Greenwich Street past the tennis courts to find the glade. Look to your right and you will see the tablet.
