Cupid's Span – Top Half Unveiled for First Time Since mid-April

This isn’t so much news as an observation. The scaffolding around the top half of Cupid’s Span in Rincon Park appears to be coming down – unveiling an evenly colored top half of the bow. The scaffolding went up just before the Olympic Torch brouhaha day in mid-April.

Let’s hope the bottom half doesn’t have to be hidden for quite as long for any planned touch ups to the paint. Although many people dislike Cupid’s Span because of its link to Don Fisher of Gap Inc. and various unpopular political stances and ballot proposals, I love it because it provides a landmark for the Rincon Hill neighborhood that compliments the idea of the “hearts in San Francisco” that can be found spread around town and also kinda looks like the outline of a boat when the Bay is in the background.

Anyway … it is nice to see projects near completion.
