The Embarcadero (“wharf” in Spanish) is the eastern waterfront roadway of the Port of San Francisco, along San Francisco Bay. During World War II, it became a military logistics center. After the construction of the Bay Bridge, the neighborhood fell into decline. Automobile transit efforts led to the Embarcadero Freeway being built in the 1960s, but it was torn down in 1991, after being severely damaged in the 1989 earthquake. It ensued a massive redevelopment with the creation of a grand palm-lined boulevard and the restoration of squares and plazas.
