Embarcadero Skyway - SF Walking Tour

Website: Date: August 13, 2017 Sunday 2PM Rating: 4 out 5 Stars Tour Duration: Around 1.15 hours. We finished around 3.15 Walking difficulty: Not much of a walk, this is prolly the shortest for me. Feedback: Quite interesting that there is such an "urban oasis" in the Embarcadero Center Area. Seems like  a Sky Garden/Bridge connecting various buildings. Really nice. Bently Reserve, Formerly Federal Reserve Bldg 400 Sansome Street If you go thru the side street and take the stairs, you can see the back of this building, and you can notice that the Portico is actually not attached to the building.  This was actually annexed later.   Early 90s Boston properties bought is as part of Embarcadero and added the portico.  This is actually a thing about two things about SF's preservation laws:  Anything added can't touch the original building can't pretend to be like the originals Ur
