Learn the rich history of one of San Francisco's most underappreciated neighborhoods. See scores of historic brick warehouses and industrial buildings including a half-dozen pre-earthquake structures in this recently revitalized neighborhood. Search for evidence underfoot of the area's rich rail-roading history. Learn about a Chinese fishing village from the 1850s; the Pacific Mail Steamship Company; dockworkers' waterfront restaurants and the artist who paints them. Experience good and not so good examples of adaptive reuse of historic buildings.
