Goodbye to Kate's Favorite Building !!

This is at 6th Street and Mission Street in San Francisco -

For the last twenty years or so, this building has been vacant. An artist put these objects on the outside and coming through the windows of this building.

My daughter Kate has remarked on this building every time we go into San Francisco. Leaving Highway 280 and heading up 6th Street, the building is very prominent.

As John King pointed out in one of his columns, the building has been taken by eminent domain by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and will be torn down.
