Anyway, what are we looking at here? This would be the loosely approximate geographic center of San Francisco, as was, very briefly, indicated by a bronze marker installed on the slope of Twin Peaks some days ago. That marker, on the 700 block of Corbett Avenue, was put in place, let's be real, for no discernible reason, with DPW director Mohammed Nuru unable to provide a justification. "Something something this is important to know" okay sure!
“I’d give it about six weeks,” surveyor Michael McGee told the Chronicle, indicating he expected the bronze disc to be purloined in little time. Like the placement of the marker, that estimate was a little off.
Plans were already announced to install a more significant plaque of some kind, at a future date. As for the disc...
