Halleck Street Resurrected

The weekly Presidio Picnic on the Parade Grounds from 11AM to 4PM on Sundays has begun again with the advent of spring.

To add to the outdoor walking pleasure...

...Halleck Street, which runs from Lincoln Boulevard down to the waterfront at Crissy Field...

...has been reopened.

The short roadway was closed in 2012 for the Doyle Drive tunnel construction...

...and the newly created overpass offers vistas... all directions.

Be careful when crossing Marina Boulevard to the waterfront, though. This intersection is so new there still are no crosswalks and it was a little dodgy crossing the street.

One of the happiest resurrection stories I have witnessed in this lifetime is the former U.S. Army base's Crissy Field, which for decades was an expanse of asphalt and concrete, being restored to thriving wetlands. It offers hope that the world can heal.
