Despite the fact that it really does look like one (and it doesn't help when the city decides bathe it in red light), Coit Tower was not purposefully intended to seem like a fire hose. A monument to the fire fighters of San Francisco takes the shape of this Art Deco landmark that was constructed. Today, the tower offers fantastic 360 views of the city, historic murals, and a fun hike (if the weather is nice).
