Long description

You've walked around it, now walk in it. The city of San Francisco that is, downtown. Walk amongst the 21st century skyscrapers and the 20th, even 19th, century skyscrapers of the day. The art and architecture of downtown is awe inspiring and surprising. See the 1910, ten story building constructed on a lot 20' wide and 80' deep. Circle around an installation of optical illusion called Absorption. How does that work? Experience the beautiful Salesforce Park that doubles as a botanical garden, in the middle of the South of Market (SOMA) regeneration. See the city, close up.
