The Embarcadero

Went a different route for lunch on Friday. Didn't realize there are lots of cool buildings and sculpture along the Embarcadero close to where I work.

San Francisco was a river valley!

A building that shapes like a ship

Historical trams that the city bought from all over the world.

They service along the Embarcadero and some go down Market Street from Castro to Fisherman's Warf.

Old YMCA building. It's a hotel now.

A giant spider sculpture at Pier 14.

Cupid Span (aka I left my heart in San Francisco). Part of it is under renovation.

Hills Brothers Coffee building - a beautiful brick house - was built in the 1920's for the coffee company.

Now it is the home of Google San Francisco office, resturants, shops and human beings.
