It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been enjoying time spent in the 17th Street Plaza that the trial period has been extended another 4 months. The plaza sits at the corner where Market Street (San Francisco’s main boulevard) and the thriving Castro Street shopping district both come together with 17th Street, where the F-Market & Wharves line turns around.
The plaza has quickly become the heart of the neighborhood, where residents and visitors gather to enjoy their coffee, the sun, and people watch. It’s even become a concert venue.
At a more basic level, the plaza is just a much more enjoyable place if you’re waiting for the next F-line streetcar.
