San Francisco & Union Square
San Francisco , officially the City and County of San Francisco, is the financial, cultural, and transportation center of the San Francisco Bay Area, a region of 7.5 million people which includes San Jose and Oakland. Union Square is an important and historic intersection in Manhattan in New York City, located where Broadway and the former Bowery Road – now Park Avenue – came together in the early 19th century; its name celebrates neither the Federal union of the United States nor labor unions but rather denotes that here was the union of the two principal thoroughfares of the island . /5

There is so much to see and do in this incredible city including The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Napa Valley,Union Square, Fishermans Wharf and The Castro to mention a few. For over 150 years, San Francisco has been a magnet for fortune seekers, immigrants, artists and poets.

The city’s relaxed atmosphere and open minded lifestyle is what makes it such a unique destination to anywhere else in America.

Holiday magazine April 1961. Dana Wiebe and Kali Dunton, friends of The Magazine were visiting San Francisco and staying at the St. Francis Hotel on Union Square. With a cell phone they snapped a photo of the Admiral Dewey monument with its wonderful "Goddess of Victory" bronze at the top. The nude model for this sculpture, done in about 1895, was a young student at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art on Nob Hill named Alma de Bretteville. The monument had to be approved by a citizens committee whose chairman was the sugar baron Adolph Spreckels. He fell for Alma and courted her for almost five years before they were married. Due to his position and her ambition she became a society leader and arts patron. Her husband, whom she called her "sugar daddy", built a mansion in Pacific Heights which is now the home of author Danielle Steel. Alma, know as "Big Alma" because she was an imposing 6'1", led a long and fascinating life. The picture of Alma in her later years sitting in her living room is from the Apri ...

Shields and Yarnell were an American mime team, formed in 1972, consisting of Robert Shields (born March 26, 1951) and Lorene Yarnell (March 21, 1944–July 29, 2010). Shields was born in Los Angeles and graduated from North Hollywood High. At the age of 18, while working as a street mime and performing at the Hollywood Wax Museum, Shields was seen by Marcel Marceau, who offered Shields a full scholarship to his school of mime in Paris. His apprenticeship was short lived as he felt the need to develop his own style and pry mime loose from its artsy pedestal. Shields soon returned to California, working in Union Square, San Francisco. Lorene Yarnell (also a native Angeleno) had become a tap dancer and actress in television shows including, Shindig!, The Carol Burnett Show, and off-Broadway musicals before she met Shields, in San Francisco. She had a rare speaking role as Doctor Irene Janus and her notorious alter ego, "Formicida" on a guest appearance on the Wonder Woman series' which also featured her hus ...

Fisherman’s Wharf - This is the big tourist destination in San Francisco, so I’m sure you’ll end up here at some point in your weekend. While locals generally avoid this area, Fisherman's Wharf offers several inexpensive activities and is one of the best places to people watch, just avoid things like the Wax Museum and Ripley’s and the "I'm With Stupid" T-shirt stands and it will be a great place to talk a walk and explore with your troop! Fisherman’s Wharf stretches from Ghirardelli Square and the Aquatic Park Pier to Pier 39. Many people take the Powell/Hyde cable car (1) from Union Square and get dropped off at Aquatic Park (the lines to get on are even worse at this end). The Historic “F” Trolley also goes along the water between Fisherman’s Wharf and Ferry Marketplace. HI Fisherman’s Wharf Hostel is just to the west at Fort Mason. If you’ve just stepped off the cable car in Aquatic Park, up on your left is the old building that used to house the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory. This ...

Great review like this is the best Christmas gift for us! Thank you Jerry7722 for this awesome review on TripAdvisor! We can't wait for you and your family to visit us again! Great Christmas Shopping Trip in San Francisco! We just returned from a happy but exhausting weekend shopping trip to San Francisco. Our stay at the Grand Hyatt Union Square could not have been nicer. We arrived at 4 PM on December 20 and our connecting rooms on the 23rd floor were waiting for us upon our arrival. Our son was with us so he had his own room. He loves his privacy. I had read reviews here about the potential noise facing Stockton Street so I had requested and was given a "city facing room" which turned out to be excellent. The only noise we heard was an occasional faintly distant siren. My wife and I thought the bed was just one of the most comfy we have slept in forever. I had trouble getting her out of it to do some shopping and explore the Union Square area. As mentioned here by others, the bathroom lighting was gre ...

AWESOME STORY OF THE MAKE A Wish Foundation which fulfills terminally ill cancer stricken children's wishes. this little 5 year old boy Miles had a dream of being Batman.. even President Obama came on national tv.. thanking miles for saving Gotham City.. :D San Francisco, grappling with the exploits of the Riddler and the Penguin, will call upon a pint-sized crusader: Miles, a 5-year-old cancer-stricken boy, a.k.a. Batkid. What started out as Miles' wish to be Batman has turned into an all-out extravaganza in San Francisco as word spread and thousands of people volunteered to pitch in and help transform the bayside metropolis into Gotham City. Coordinated by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the effort will include Miles' own Batmobile, a personal call from Police Chief Greg Suhr for help, the apprehension of the Riddler and then a flash mob involving hundreds of people in Union Square alerting Batkid to the fact that Penguin has kidnapped Lou Seal, the San Francisco Giants mascot. Batkid will then chas ...
Ah, the light is waning. We will be leaving for the signing in a couple of hours. 7 p.m. at Books Inc, Opera Plaza, San Francisco. Christopher will sign "The Heavens Rise." I will sign "The Wolves of Midwinter." And so my beautiful day in San Francisco will extend into a beautiful evening, made all the better by hotdogs from the stand by Union Square and the blue sky over head and the mild weather. San Francisco, Open your Golden Gates! Why can't I live part of the year here, part in New Orleans and part in Southern California? Well, maybe I can.

San Francisco 2013 – The Unofficial Story - By Craig Edwards Part 1 of 4 The sense or arrival at San Francisco Airport was heighted by meeting fellow Kiwi Hillary Barry of 3 News and her crew. There was clearly a good contingent of Team New Zealand supporters arriving on our flight to see the opening race of the 34th America’s Cup contest the next day. We all shared the same anticipation… who would have the faster boat? After checking in at Sanford Court Hotel near Union Square it was off to meet new friends from the International Order of the Blue Gavel. The AC final was a good excuse for a get together of members of this respected club of former yacht club commodores. They turned out to be a great bunch of people from clubs in Santa Monica and San Diego as well as local clubs in San Francisco. I was the sole, but proud, representative from District 75 in NZ. Together with fellow kiwi yachties Kelly Hutchings and Sam Jones from Naval Point Club Lyttelton in Christchurch and Marlborian and Wai ...
Great day in San Francisco. Biked the Golden Gate Bridge. Lunch in Sausalito, toured Chinatown, and Union Square. Time for dinner.
We are currently working on a piece to represent Steve Reich. Mr. Reich helped pioneer the minimalism movement in music in the mid to late 1960s. This type of music is not for everyone but I feel it represents a shift in classical music that I want to express. I've chosen selections from two pieces titled It's Gonna Rain and Music for 18 Musicians. In "It's Gonna Rain" Reich used two tape recorders to tape a Pentecostal Preacher giving a speech in San Francisco's Union Square about the end of the world. The phrase, "It's gonna rain" is repeated and looped over itself to create an interesting and at least unforgettable quality of musical patterns and rhythms. There is also the sound of dove wings taking flight to add to the rhythmic mix. Hopefully the dance will distract those that do not find this type of music appealing. Ces't la art! :)
Xanadu Gallery, Frank Lloyd Wright Building, Union Square, San Francisco. Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532 works. Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by his design for Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States.
Thank you everybody for all the wonderful birthday thoughts! Spent the day in "The City" - San Francisco, with Debbie and Ted. Walked from Union Square to Molinari's for the best sandwich for lunch.

NOYNOY AQUINO IS NUMBER 1 LIAR... NOYNOY AQUINO said that his top priority, if elected as SENATOR. (before he became President) would be to recover the stolen Marcos wealth ( kuno!).This was something that even Noynoy’s late mother, President Cory Aquino failed to do when she installed a revolutionary government after Edsa 1. Recover the Marcos wealth? Give me a break. Much of the Marcos wealth was plundered by Cory’s Kamaganak Inc. My gulay, have we forgotten too soon that anomalous sale of the government prime property at a corner of Union Square, San Francisco, California after the election of Cory and before she assumed office? Many of those who went laughing all the way to the bank are still very much around. Have we also forgotten that when Marcos went into exile, the Cory Aquino elements took from the Palace seven, I repeat SEVEN , suitcases of Imelda’s jewelry to be deposited in a doctor’s house in Dasmariñas Village, Makati? Only three suitcases later on surfaced to be deposited to the . ...

Why Not Just Rename S.F. The Big Apple? Debra J. Saunders Ruth Asawa's "San Francisco Fountain" owes Apple big time. Before the tech behemoth announced its plans to plop a slick, glassy Apple Store where Levi's and the fountain plaza reside, many locals were blithely unaware of the bronze landmark. Mayor Ed Lee apparently forgot about it when he cozied up to Apple execs announcing their plans to bulldoze (in effect) and build over the northeast corner of San Francisco's Union Square. The fountain -- which features iconic Ess Eff landmarks molded by school children and other city folk in baker's clay, then memorialized in bronze -- is in an ugly red brick plaza off Stockton Street. The plaza and fountain were built in tandem, but in 1973, when people thought avocado-colored appliances were classy. There's a typo in the first sentence of the fountain's plaque. ("Visitor's come," it begins.) Only after Chronicle urban design critic John King wrote that the new Apple box would "displace one of downtown's frie ...
While doing some research for a piece on the Allen Ginsberg photo show at Contemporary Jewish Museum, I ran across this bit or trivia that Ginsbergians may already be aware of, but I was not. In 1959, Ginsberg, on peyote, had a vision of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco's Union Square as a kind of Moloch, or child-eating cruel god. This image (which is similar to Fritz Lang's depiction of industrial machinery in his silent gothic/sci-fi film, "Metropolis," which Ginsberg saw) found its way into his poem, "Howl," as a metaphor for soul-devouring American capitalism. Moloch the incomprehensible prison! Moloch the crossbone soulless jailhouse and Congress of sorrows! Moloch whose buildings are judgment! Moloch the vast stone of war! Moloch the stunned governments! Moloch whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo! Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb! Moloch whose eyes are a thousand blind windows! ...

With Bonnie Scagg’s How pleased we are to received another trip story from Bonnie, this time to the Planet Hollywood opening in San Francisco on 16th July, 1995. These memorable trips, including Bonnie's amazing photos are a remarkable reminder covering many of Don's cherished moments during the course of his astonishing career. Don has no other fan who has been so supportive as Bonnie and we thank her for sharing with us all once again. We arrived in San Francisco at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 16th. It was a beautiful, sunny day in the city, and we were excited and hopeful that we might get to see Don!! Planet Hollywood was opening on the corner of Market Stockton Streets, so we drove to Union Square where we parked the car. We arrived early in the day, as we did not know what to expect – would there be many people? Where was the best place to wait in order to get the best view? Etc., We had lunch at Original Joe’s, then made our way to Planet Hollywood – only a block awa ...
I would often see these ladies, always dressed to the “nines”, around Union Square, usually along Powell Street. They always intrigued my interest, making me curious about their story. San Francisco lost won of these icons, Vivian, who passed away in January. This is their story. Marian (born January 25, 1927) and Vivian Brown (January 25, 1927 – January 9, 2013) are American identical twins and icons of San Francisco, known for the appearance in media with their signature identical bright snappy outfits with hats atop their meticulously coiffed hair. They were voted second as San Francisco's "Best Local Character" in 2000. They would often eat dinner at one of the front tables at Uncle Vito's restaurant, just below the crest of Nob Hill. At 5 feet 1 inch, and weighing 98 pounds each, Marian and Vivian were always seen together. They dressed alike, walked in lockstep and ate at the same speed, even lifted their forks in unison. They never broke character until Vivian became forgetful due to her Alzh ...

San FrancisCO — Vivian Brown, who with identical twin Marian, became iconic figures on the streets of San Francisco for more than four decades has died after a lengthy illness, the San Francisco Coroner’s Office confirmed on Friday. Brown, who would have turned 86 on Jan. 25, suffered from Alzheimer's and had a fall last year that further debilitated her. The sisters had also fallen on hard times economically over the last few years and have been helped out by private donations and local charities. The Browns were born eight minutes apart in Kalamazoo, Mich., but came to San Francisco to work as secretaries at different downtown department stores in 1970s. They captured the eye of legendary San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen and became well known for strolling in city’s Union Square shopping district, wearing bright identical outfits and sporting meticulously coiffed hair. They became so well-known that they were featured in advertising campaigns and their image graced the pages of local ne ...

We are looking forward to Happy Hour next Thursday night, 12/13, at the Tonga Room, Fairmont Hotel, in San Francisco. I have done some checking with them - officially their Happy Hour is from 5-7pm Mon-Fri. Lat38 Happy Hour is usually from 6-8 to allow those working folks a chance to get places ... They will not take reservations for the bar area, so if anyone can arrive early, it would be great if you could grab as many seats in the corner as possible. Just FYI, they have Happy Hour drink specials and offer a buffet of appetizers for a nominal fee. There has been discussion among a few folks about heading over to Union Square afterwards to check out the holiday tree, lights, etc. and to maybe grab a bite of dinner elsewhere. Everyone is welcome to join in!!! We look forward to seeing everyone at the Tonga Room, Fairmont Hotel, 950 Mason Street, San Francisco (415) 772-5278.

Had a wonderful day in San Francisco--indigenous media panel was marvelous then had a lovely two-hour lunch visit with my awesome fellow panel members at the Grand Cafe (it felt like we were in Paris or Prague). Then walked down to Union Square to meet Dave and explore a bit, then took a "night tour" on the top deck of a sightseeing bus to see SF aglow--the evening was clear and mild and beautiful. Chinese dinner, and Bailey's Irish Cream from the local corner grocery to top off a great day!
The weather has been beautiful in San Francisco! We enjoyed a cable car ride to Fisherman's Wharf, walking along Pier 39 and dinner at Union Square. Tomorrow we will head to Napa Valley and visit the vineyards for a couple of days before heading back to Atlanta.
We now, Liz and I are sitting at the San Francisco airport waiting for our departure on our Virgin American flight home. We have spent the last 5 days enjoying Beautiful weather in San Francisco. It was a treat for both of our birthdays along with a little business for Aili and Tao. We have enjoyed among other things freezing our butts off at the7:30 PM Cal UofO game at Berkley(a blow out in favor of you know who). Ha,ha. We walked the SF wharf, Sausalito, Union Square, Knob Hill, rode the cable cars, watched the gorgeous sunsets from the top of the Mark sipping Martinis, ate fabulous food, walked through Golden Gate Park, took a Cruise through the San Francisco Harbor to Alcatraz Island and then on to Sausalito to wander throught the awesome art galleries and then to eat a very delicious platter of mussels and Dungeness crab and garlic butter. More later boarding.

Bill O'Reilly quotes. enjoy. "If I'm the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium, and I say, 'Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead. And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.'" --after San Francisco voted to ban military recruiters from city schools, Nov. 8, 2005 (Listen to audio clip) (Source) 2) "I just wish Katrina had only hit the United Nations building, nothing else, just had flooded them out, and I wouldn't have rescued them." --on his radio show, Sept. 14, 2005 (Source) 3) "I'll tell you what.

Xi Jinping is rumored to assume his role as China's next president sometime in mid-October. This presents a very important opportunity for us to insert Tibet into the media in the context of the Chinese leadership transition and challenge China and its leaders over its colonial rule in Tibet. Join us as Tibetans and supporters world-wide irreparably shame and condemn the Chinese government and it's new head, Xi Jinping, for over 60 years of colonial rule in Tibet and exacerbating the grievances of the Tibetan people.

I first met Rush Limbaugh in San Francisco in 1984 during the Democratic National Convention--it was in a hotel at Union Square. Paul Weyrich introduced us to each other at a book table for the Heritage Foundation. How many of you have ever prayed for Rush?

so this is week 7 in San Francisco for marcus. he still loves what he does and never complains about going to the theatre. the cast of Les Mis performed ina charity concert for HIV/AIDS this past monday which was alot of fun. It was great seeing the cast members perform different songs. They are all so talented. San Francisco was fun but also depressing. Our hotel was in Union Square and we have to walk down Market Street or take the metro to the theatre. There are aeveral homeless people per block asking for spare change, asking us to have a heart, asking for money for the metro, etc. San Francisco is considered a sanctuary for homeless people and there are loads of services and stipends, so one assumes it is drug/alcohol money theynare looking for. It is just very sad but good for the kids to see i guess. We are just ready to leave. Andy took Marcus to six flags, science museum, and lots of nice restaurants. We visited Ripleys museum, Fishermans Wharf a few times, and the exploratorium. Uncle ...
Just got home from Identity Festival @ Shoreline Amphitheatre - Mountain View, CA.

Yummy.

From Paragon Commercial: The market (all phases of commercial – office leasing and sales, investments, industrial, etc.) in San Francisco is one of the strongest in the country and SOMA is probably the hottest throughout the U.S. in secondary and tertiary buildings in SOMA is being rented (by tech companies) at rents as high as $50/sf, net of utilities and janitorial service (known as IG). Compounding these rents is the dearth of space, well-below a 5% vacancy factor, with no end in sight. Projecting into the future, tenants are now relocating into previously unforeseen locations: Mid-Market between 6th and 12th, paying $40/sf rents. There are few other locations to consider – west of Union Square and in the Financial District, where rents range from the mid-$30s to the mid-$40s (for class-B properties). One of the main reasons for the influx of tech companies is that San Francisco has a different cache, compared to a city, say, Sunnyvale. Author: Stephen Shain – 40 years of office leasing and inves ...

Sipping wine in San Francisco! Walked around Chinatown, stopped for lunch and wine, walked thru Little Italy, saw Coit Tower, headed to Fisherman's Wharf, stopped for a glass of wine, went for a cable car ride, passed Union Square, picked up some wine. Hmm, bit of a theme here.

I have had the most amazing day in San Francisco. Drove over th Gateway Bridge which i never tire of seeing it is awesome. Went to Lombard Street the curviest street in the WORLD it has to be seen to be believed, Then onto the house where Mrs Doubtfire was set, the full house house, Union Square and down town. Had lunch at the original cheesecake factory, which by the way has 250 items on their menu ( how to choose). Have NEVER eaten so much food in my life. Then to finish off the day we rode the cable cars to Fishermans Wharf and back ( Yes i hung off the side the whole way). All in all one of the most incredible days of my life. So glad i got to share it with Jayde Yates, Evelyn Harris and Maggie. I love you all and thanks for the beautiful memories we made today.
Ah, sat in Union Square in San Francisco this evening and enjoyed a fine cigar. Even better, I had to don a fleece because the temp was in the 50s--AND I WAS LOVIN' IT. What a nice respite--albeit brief--from the South Alabama summer heat.
Wow, another great day in San Francisco. Walked for 8 hours (from Lombard Street to Fishermans Wharf and all the way to Union Square) Just got back to the hotel. Ready for a nap...
The Anti Republican Crusaders may be a bit biased...but So Am I...Deregulation destroyed the Middle Financial Niche of American business, like ours...after 38 years in San Francisco, most of them at 278 Post St. on Union Square...we suddenly found ourselves in competition with our "wsuppliers"... and undersold until we no longer had a viable business to sell...including Sausalito Stationers! That deregulation...and today's Supreme Court creation of Coporate Personnhood...even the American People will not be viable with a single vote! Unless they begin to WANT to be INFORMED and understand the Republicans are not fiscal cnservatives. Abe Lincoln was the last Republican Fiscal Conservative!
so, we went out to breakfast, a place called "Stacks"...pancakes and other things up the kazoo! flowers everywhere in sconces and a humungous pot in the center of the room (made up for the lack thereof in my hair).then drove to Union Square to get a three day Muni (bus and cable car) pass.one thing I have to say about that: one way streets are a bear to navigate if you don't know where they are!!!.Then we went to the Jewish Museum (it was closed today, Wednesday).THAT was a pain,. then we caught a street car (they are ancient, and from cities all over), went to Fisherman's Wharf, where we ate GREAT Clam Chowder and oysters at Scoma's...then a windy walk over the Golden Gate Bridge, then a great dinner at an Irish pub (where we collapsed from old age), and a long bus ride home. San Francisco is a great cosmopolitan place to roam around at night.LOTs of tiny restaurants, packed out with people talking.

Back from California, suitcases put away and we are left with many happy memories. The heat was unbelievable-over 100 at Megan's graduation and 105+ at Andrew's. Fortunately, Andrew's graduation was inside and air conditioned. But walking to it was something else. We feel so blessed and Andrew got the job he really wanted-double blessings!!! On Monday, Andrew and Roger checked out San Francisco while Megan and I shopped at the ultimate Macy's store at Union Square. Just had to go down Lombard Street for the umpteenth time-something about SF, you never tire of it!!

Well we are home from San Francisco. It was great to treat Kym for having a great year at UVIC as she now has her B.SC. in Biology. I thoroughly enjoyed her company and shopping fettishes while in San Francisco. I'm sure all the merchants in the Union Square and Financial District will miss her economic input.

Hi All I just wanted to give you a little more detail on the Friday San Francisco trip that we will be having the day before the family reunion. We will start with a beautiful train ride from Sacramento through the Suisun Marsh, famous for its diverse birdlife, and onto Emeryville, where we will quickly change to a waiting Amtrak bus that will take us over the Bay Bridge and into San Francisco. We will get off at Union Square for some window shopping and just general gawking at this beautiful and dynamic city. Then we will get on the famous SF cable car and ride to Chinatown for a quick snack and more sightseeing. We will then hop back on the cable car and take the exciting plunge down Hyde Street to Fishermans Wharf. We will undoubtedly pass some time eating pastries, ice cream, chocolate, and/or sourdough bread while viewing the sites. Then we will have dinner and the Amtrak bus will pick us up right there on Fishermans Wharf and we will have a relaxing ride back to Sacramento. I know many of you ha ...
Had a wonderful weekend. Spent Saturday at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay.

Sunday my baby and I spent in San Francisco at Union Square shopping! Thank YOu Jesus for giving us the ability to spend time together.
I had an enjoyable trip Easter Week with the Spokane Symphony Associates to San Francisco. In just four days we accomplished a great deal. We visited two wineries in the Napa Valley, saw exhibits at the Legion of Honor Museumand the DeYoung Museum, toured Alcatraz, heard the San Francisco Symphony with Itzak Perlman as bothviolin soloist and conductor, and saw three Balanchine ballets with the San Francisco Ballet Company. Our hotel was the Warwick, located conveniently just two blocks from Union Square on Geary St.
Apparently, fat people are unable to read maps. When we exited the train station in Union Square, a homeless man approached us. He was trying to "give" us a map. Cindy told him we already had one. He said we didn't. We started to walk away and he yells "she's too fat to read it anyway!" I politely told him to have a nice day. He yelled "there's a Jenny Craig right down the street!" That's when Cindy almost got arrested. And that was my welcome to San Francisco. So later that afternoon, we made it back down to Union Square for some sightseeing. The same man approached me and tried to give me a map. I kindly reminded him that I was too fat to read it. That is not a very good way to sell maps. No wonder he is homeless.
