Turn right as soon as you enter the lobby to visit a little museum which showcase artifacts that were found during contruction of the building. Also notice the historical elevator doors in art deco design.

Art work by Joan Brown located in the center of the rooftop garden and a glimpse of the Bay and Treasure Island in between the two buildings.
Another view of the obelisk with TransAmerica building as backdrop.
In the lobby facing Sacremento Street is a fountain called L'Octagon designed by a Belgian artist. The silver balls move with the water. Very neat.
Ground floor of the building are restaurants that open to to Leidesdorff Street.
In San Francisco builders are required to provide public space when they build new commercial buildings. As a result there is a lot of public spaces in the form of rooftop gardens and courtyards where general public can visit. Many of these spaces are hidden. I just discover some of them after joining a 2-hour tour offered by San Francisco Citywalk. Let's first look at the rooftop garden at Wells Fargo which can be access from Crocker Galleria -- a shopping mall/food court where I visit once in a while. I know where to have lunch next time. . . .
Access the garden from the top floor of Crocker Galleria.
On the other side of the garden is the 1914 Hobart Building.
And across Market Street is the Palace Hotel.
