San Francisco Considers Embarcadero at Market for Vibrant Communal Space

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days … I went to New York with my boyfriend for a mini-vacation. If you have not flown Burlingame-based Virgin America airlines, I highly recommend the experience! I’ve flown round-trip to New York’s JFK twice over the past year (the first time, a short period after they first began operations), and it is hard to beat for amenities and the airfare is usually pretty good … $250 this go around for me. I digress….
Following the Obama election night impromptu street parties scattered all over town with no central gathering spot really popping into San Franciscans’ consciousness to share the occasion together as a citywide celebration, the folks at City Hall are eyeballing spots to create new, vibrant communal space. According to San Francisco Chronicle’s John King, The Embarcadero between Mission and Broadway is in the City’s crosshairs as a potential spot. I’d suggest they run the space all the way down to Folsom, if that’s possible, to link up Rincon Hill’s future-planned retail row.
