Past, Present and Future?

Moscone Marsh

Today, South of Market, Howard Street flows past the new SFMOMA and through Moscone Center and along Yerba Buena Gardens.   One time it was a neighborhood of industrial buildings and working class, inexpensive flats and rooming houses, during the Gold Rush it earned the moniker Happy Valley as the dunes and marshes gave way to the growth of San Francisco.   Perhaps, after sea levels rise, we might let nature take its course and the tide can beginning flowing where cars now zoom down the street.
