The Road To Myself

As I am battling traffic on Embarcadero in San Francisco, I remember the days when I had the whole road to myself. Of course those days are long over in the South Beach/ South of Market area.

Back in the late 80’s, I worked in a loft building with an artist in South Beach not far from the Clock Tower. I remember how quiet and at times creepy the neighborhood felt. The general consensus was that the neighborhood was “in transition”. After the 89’ earthquake things really changed. The highway that divided the Waterfront and Ferry Building from downtown and the Cypress Structure was removed.

As I cruise down Mandela Parkway on my way to Pacific Cannery Lofts, I am reminded of the days of having the road to myself in a neighborhood “in transition”. Hmm…sounds like a tune I have heard before.
