Peeking out the back window on the F-Market

July 23rd, 2015

Since I had jack shit else to do needed to get some fresh air this afternoon I took the F-Market over to the Wharf to wander around and check out everyone’s favorite tourist bullshit. I was lucky enough to get the back of a streetcar all to myself for most of the ride, so I filmed a few shaky iPhone videos from the back window.

First, here’s looking back at Market Street starting near the Dolby building:


 

Again on Market Street, this time near UN Plaza:


 

Finally, the F-Market goes from Embarcadero to Jefferson St.:


 

And now since you’ve made it this far, I’m going to scare you away with a vertical video (gasp!) of the most terrifying thing at the Wharf: Lauffing Sal.

Obnoxious tourists

October 22nd, 2010

Don’t get me wrong, when people get lost and need help I enjoy giving directions. I know the city pretty well and have a good sense of direction, and failing that I have an iPhone with Google Maps.

But sometimes, tourists in the city are just completely obnoxious. You know it’s always a bad sign when they ask how to get to Fisherman’s Wharf.
