North Beach Library Plaza Opens This Weekend

San Francisco will add a new (albeit temporary) pedestrian space to one of its densest neighborhoods tomorrow when a section of Mason Street in North Beach is closed to car traffic. I won't be in town to see its first weekend myself, but I look forward to visiting soon - and taking pictures.

If you can, stop by the new plaza at Mason and Columbus Avenue, in front of the North Beach Branch Library. The space will be open for two months, until September 27th.

As predicted the street closure has simply moved traffic off the only through street that runs to and from the wharf and onto the adjacent streets where elementary schools are situated. This closure is a pedestrian hazard.

Come by any morning and you'll see a huddle of junkies and alcoholics who have a daily jamboree.
