You know, just last night I took a walk up to the pier at Agua Vista Park to peer at the aquatic view. I had hoped to catch sight of the “supermoon”, but alas there was only a woolen sky and quietly shifting waves. I thought to myself that someone should write something about the unloved and unmentioned park at the edge of the city.
Luckily, we have Carl Nolte, San Francisco’s Native Son!
Gritty southern waterfront city’s last industrial stretch
Everybody who is interested in San Francisco ought to take a walk along the southern waterfront before it vanishes.
We’re talking here about a short stretch – maybe a mile or so – just south of the ballpark along Terry Francois Boulevard to where it ends at Mariposa Street, next to the Mission Rock Resort and the Ramp bar and restaurant.
As articles about this stretch of waterfront go, it exists — which is more than can be said about most articles about the Central Waterfront, which can’t be bothered to write themselves.
