Street Party Brings Residents to Fisherman's Wharf

The roads around Fisherman's Wharf, which were jam-packed with tourists, were retrieved today by the local people who spread out in order to take advantage of street closures. It blocked off about more than three miles of the Embarcadero.

The first Sunday Streets of 2010 tempted the San Francisco residents and a lot of Bay Area neighbors, towards a nomadic San Francisco street party that opened its third year under fine skies and temperatures in the mid-60s.

Everyone including pedestrians and bikers commanded the northern lanes of the Embarcadero from Fisherman's Wharf to China Basin south of AT&T Park for almost five hours.

Marissa Hockenberry, a young city resident, shared that she loved not having to worry about cars. Some other residents believed that noise levels as well as the air quality improve if there are lesser cars on roads.

This was the first street closures out of the nine that are planned to be executed this year by the city.

Pier 39 and the Fisherman's Wharf Community Benefit District planned a lot of family-friendly events to attract residents like a human-powered merry-go-round, a rock-climbing wall, juggling workshops and magic shows.

Kevin Carroll, Executive Director of the Fisherman's Wharf Community Benefit District unveiled that the event caused a boom in business today. Carroll said, “This is a great way to get locals out and show them what you can do in the neighborhood”.
