Go Giants!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a proverbial rock somewhere away from the internet, TV, radio, print media, and your sports-loving friends who are die-hard San Francisco Giants fans, you’re probably aware that Friday was Opening Day at AT&T Park. And if you’ve known me for more than a week or so, you’re probably aware that I’m not the world’s biggest sports fan.

However…

I not only attended the game on Friday, I loved it. OK, OK, I’ll admit that 12 innings of baseball might have been a little too much baseball in one day for a bandwagon fan like me, but it was fun. I get the whole “torture” thing, and I’m looking forward to going to many more games throughout this season. I’m not sure I’ll wear these pants:

But it was a great experience to watch this with 42,047 other fans (I think there were two Cardinals fans there. Maybe three):

Admittedly, I’m not enough of an insta-fan that I’m ready to pull up stakes in the Inner Sunset and move to Mission Bay, but if  I wanted to live within walking distance of AT&T Park and avoid both driving and braving MUNI to the ballpark, I’d have all kinds of choices.

If conversion lofts are your speed, there are a number of cool buildings within a few blocks of the park. The Oriental Warehouse is on Delancey @ Brannan, just half a mile away. 650 2nd Street is even closer, just a block and a half away.

If you’re more in the mood for a new or new-ish building, you’ll have plenty of options in that realm, too. Directly across from the park is 88 King Street, which is currently in the midst of a major facelift (new windows being installed). Down Berry Street you’ll find the Arterra, which earned major green cred when it was the first building in SF to achieve LEED Silver Status. Those are just a couple of the nearby options.
