historic waterfront districts

San Francisco is no stranger to historic buildings and districts – it’s one of the things that makes simply strolling around this hilly city so enjoyable. The northeast corner of the city – specifically the Northeast Waterfront Historic District, Jackson Square Historic District and the Central Embarcadero Piers Historic District – is home to leafy streets and many pieces of beautiful architecture. Starting at Levi’s Plaza on Battery Street, I walked south from Greenwich Street to Green Street through the NE Waterfront Historic District – this is where most of the buildings below are located. When I hit Broadway, I turned east and hit the Embarcadero, where the stately pier buildings stand tall, offering many cafés and little spots to catch a view of the bay. At Pacific Avenue, I turned back west and walked through Jackson Square, a quiet spot where highly regarded restaurants like Quince can be found.
