We recently mentioned the 17th Street plaza, which closes the last half block of 17th Street at Castro and Market where the F-Market & Wharves line turns around to create a public open space. Construction has been underway for the last few days, installing planters to and painting the street to delineate the edges, for today’s opening.
There will be a ceremony this morning at 10:00 AM with Mayor Newsom officially opening the plaza for a 2-6 trial period.

  1. Just went there today. It was a nice scene just sitting in the middle of a street watching…no streetcars going by…oh well, it was later in the day, that’s why.
