Here’s the news about this “impossible to get to location” on Market Street:
And here’s the early reaction from area millionaires:

4th and Market is a tough area for bicycle security, certainly
We don’t have any WalMarts here in SF, of course, but it’s easy to start over again if you’re only paying $99 for the bike.

If You’re Looking for Rainbow-Colored, Electrified Paper Lanterns Hanging from Trees, Head Over to Market StreetThursday, June 9th, 2016
The installation looked a bit tricky:
‘Cause you know, many Frisco street trees kill / harm people who aren’t horsing around in them. Our poorly-selected municipal sidewalk “forest” is tres fragile, non? (I would have expected an expensive ladder truck and an expensive crew of five or so SFGov workers. You know, now I’m starting to wonder if this is an official project. Maybe it’s some kind of prank, who knows.)
You hung your lights in the trees
That’s how many came to grief
Oh here we go, all done. Look, Jennifer Aniston approves:
(Hey, why do we have Victorian-era, 17 foot tall magazine ad towers on the sidewalks and Streets of San Francisco? IDK, political corruption? And what’s the steampunk roof thing for? IDK. And why does it say “San Francisco?” Do people forget where they are sometimes? I mean who signed off on this cheesiness? Why don’t we just ash can these things?)
Anyway, this is the scene south of the slot betwixt 4th and 5th as of yesterday.
Perhaps more electrified paper lanterns are coming? Perhaps…
Irate Pedestrian Hectors Bike Riders Individually and Indiscriminately in a Crosswalk at 4th and MarketWednesday, January 28th, 2015
She hectored only the riders who stopped for her at the crosswalk.
She was angered by the riders who went through the red, but they were too far away for her to hector. Her unfocused rage came out against those who were already doing as she wished.
Then after she passed by, riders began to run the red, cause the signal timing of 4th and Market these days is crazy. (Like, who’s doing what now? Like why isn’t anybody using the intersection now?)
SF has the worst peds in the world…
