Some glimpses at the historic importance of California as a producer of fruits and vegetables… Part of this legacy locally is the Del Monte brand of canned foods, still headquartered in the city—its first plant (and the world’s largest fruit and vegetable cannery at the time) is still preserved today as The Cannery at Del Monte Square, a block away down Jefferson Street.

Ghirardelli is another local brand, this one famous for chocolates, established by Italian immigrant Domenico Ghirardelli. It claims to be the second-oldest chocolate company in the U.S. The historic Ghirardelli Square, the original headquarters of the company, would become the first major adaptive re-use project in the U.S., and now features a variety of restaurants and stores, as well as hotel space (Fairmont Heritage Place).

With all the open-air food vendors at the Wharf, the sea gulls tend on the plump side…

Red Bull Flügtag 2012
2012.11.10

An event where teams assemble together and test their own “flying machines”… The great thing was that they opened up much of AT&T Park to the public for viewing the event.

Stopped by the food section to pick up a quick snack.

It’s definitely more about creativity than actually seeing how far you can fly…

Yerba Buena Gardens
2012.11.10

After the Flügtag, I stopped by Yerba Buena Gardens to snap some photos at one of my favorite vantage points in Downtown San Francisco…

St. Regis Museum Tower (SOM, 2005)
This building houses the St. Regis-branded hotel rooms and residences, as well as the Museum of the African Diaspora. Easily one of my favorites among the City’s newer towers.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (Botta, 1995)
A new 235,000 square-foot expansion for the museum, designed by Snøhetta, is in the works.

PacBell Building (Miller and Pflueger, 1925)
One of my favorite of the older towers, a bit unusual given its location south of Market Street. Of course, Pacific Telephone & Telegraph / Pacific Bell are no more… The building’s new tenants are Yelp.

Aronson Building (1903)
This building, sitting kitty-corner to the St. Regis Museum Tower, is proposed for a similar treatment as the latter, which involved a rehab of the historic Williams Building (1907). Under the proposed plan, a new 47-story, 550-foot tower would rise adjacent to a rehabilitated Aronson Building, housing 215 condo units and a new addition to Yerba Buena’s growing collection of cultural attractions: the Mexican Museum. All this assuming that residents in the adjacent Four Seasons tower quit throwing a tantrum… :haha:

St. Patrick’s Church (1872)
When first established in 1851, this Catholic parish catered to a growing (and religious) community of Irish immigrants who came for the Gold Rush. Nowadays, like many of the City’s churches, the parish reflects the influence of successive waves of immigrants including Hispanics and Filipinos. The South of Market (SoMa) area surrounding the church is perhaps the epicenter of the Filipino community in San Francisco proper.

Contemporary Jewish Museum (Libeskind, 2008)
This is the most recent addition to the Yerba Buena museum scene, featuring a new building designed by Daniel Libeskind and incorporating the adjacent historic Jessie Street Power Substation (1907).

Moved a couple blocks north to Union Square…

450 Sutter Street (Pflueger, 1929)
Another one of my favorites among the oldies, this one features a unique Mayan-influenced Art Deco design.

555 California Street (SOM, 1969)
The City’s second tallest building and the former HQ of Bank of America before they left for North Carolina.

Some of the finest City pics indeed. Bravo! I hope I will get to appreciate the City much more since I live here too.
