The Coit Tower in San Francisco reopened on June 17 after being closed for 15 months, according to a recent article by SFist. The 210-ft Art Deco structure, which is located on Telegraph Hill, will reopen to normal operating hours. Masks will be required, but only while riding the elevators. Coit Tower houses the largest Depression-era art collection in the U.S. The building went through several changes throughout the closure. Most notably, the statue of Christopher Columbus, which was subject to repeated vandalism, was removed last June. London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco, said of the tower:

“Coit Tower gives visitors a glimpse of the city’s breathtaking beauty and the resilience of its residents. I’m thrilled to open this beloved landmark to the public again.”
