Pier 1 and the Waterfront – Neglected and Forgotten — [6 Images]

Pier 1 was used as a parking lot, with miscellaneous office and retail uses in the Bulkhead Building.  Finger piers like Pier 1 had become dilapidated and obsolete and, with the 1953 construction of the Embarcadero Freeway, the once vibrant Port of San Francisco was cut off from its lifeblood, the City of San Francisco.
