Know Your Condemned San Francisco Parking Lots – The Ferry Building’s Pier 1/2

San Francisco’s Ferry Building is just to the right in this photo of Pier 1/2 (“one-half” – that’s what they call it). People used to park there and then buy (or sell) expensive mushrooms next door.

But now the pier is condemned so the parking lot on top just sits around, a proud symbol of The City That Knows How to let things go to hell.  

The macadam looks a little wavy, huh? Click to expand:

Savor the Good Old Days, pre-condemnation:

Phase 2 of the Downtown Ferry Terminal Project will eventually replace this 70-year-old pier, one of these decades.

Now, you better know your Condemned San Francisco Parking Lots.

    Are you telling me those 100 people aren’t coming to the ferry building because they don’t realize there are a TON of transit options available within a 2 min walk? There is a world out from behind the windshield.

    I think that they’re rich enough to prefer driving there. You think the store owners are just makng things up?

    On the other hand, can’t they just take out some insurance, get some valet parkers who are good swimmers, and use it anyway?
