Fisherman's Wharf's main street getting a makeover
Just in time for the 2013 America’s Cup, Fisherman’s Wharf’s Jefferson Street will get a makeover, turning it into a more pedestrian friendly street by widening the sidewalks and narrowing the street. The heart of the tourist area includes the 5 blocks between Powell and Hyde streets. The work is slated to start in October with the two blocks from Jones to Hyde at Aquatic Park. The remaining 3 blocks are not yet funded and require another $7.5M. Me thinks that for the America’s Cup, the city will find the money somehow.
Inexplicably saddened by the death that occurred in the San Francisco Bay earlier this afternoon, during a practice session for America’s Cup 2013 on the new AC72 catamaran.
Probably because it’s sailing and racing and those are fun activities.
Tragedies still occur, even with the best of precautions.
