South of Market has been in a state of metamorphosis for decades. The area around Yerba Buena Gardens, once a grid of skid rows, is now firmly established as a zone of conventions and culture. Moscone Center and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (or SFMoMA) anchor the district. Farther to the west by just a few blocks, however, traces of the neighborhood’s down-at-heels past remain. Taking it all in makes for an interesting study in contrasts as the transformation of SOMA continues apace.
