Hyde Street Pier

Hyde street pier is down by Fisherman's Wharf, they have several old boats tied up there you can tour for a fee, I'm not sure it is worth the trip however.

New Addition to the San Francisco Skyline

San Francisco is undergoing a mini building boom. One Rincon Hill, the condo tower on the very left, is currently under construction, it will be 60 stories and 641 feet tall when finished. It is right off of the bay bridge, apparently I-80 is alone in its ability to convey ever expanding amounts of traffic with no upgrades ever. There are a couple other building that you can't see yet also under construction. Le Blog Exuberance and the SF Gate have more information and pictures.
