Congress Street at High Street
It's amazing to watch the progress at Congress Square. You've come a long way, baby! :)
“We'll be at the beautiful Congress Square Park tonight along with some live music with our Food for Thought table, Helen Coxe will be reading her story…”
I want a small to medium size performance space with a SPRUNG FLOOR that makes it suitable for dance.
Ideas like this are fine and all, but if the city sells 2/3 of our land, we will not have enough room to do much> I do not think the city councelors should be making the decision to sell. We have so little public space on Congress st. now-- wendy
If we are not going to let the Hyatt build their conference center/ballroom (which could potentially be really good for local businesses, and we are not opposed to), then the next best use of the space would be as a well-landscaped, public park with a performance area. This could be a great central area for people to gather during first Fridays, and would contribute a lot to the revitalization of the Congress/State St. area.
In the past, the area has been a popular hangout for the homeless, but if it were improved and landscaped a bit, it would be a lot more appealing to average folks as a spot to sit and enjoy lunch, to host free/outdoor concerts, and just as a nice addition to our city's park system.

Wow! Fantastic event. Thanks for posting, Suzanne. Here is the direct link if you want to invite friends: neighborland.com/ideas/portlan...
Anyone have an visual examples of the type of improved public space you'd like to see? What would it look like?
A place for crafts as well as art/farmers market. We (www.humannatureofme.com) would love to participate! Right now we do not really have a place to fit in & can not afford to lease a permanent space.
Dig it! Very cool idea to add local crafts people and makers.
Love it! And here's an example that you don't need expensive equipment and infrastructure to create an urban performance space: neighborland.com/ideas/sf-soma...
Street Stage SF seeks to give street musicians a platform for their art and to enchance the public realm through street music.
StreetStage re-envisions and reframes the role of street performance in our evolving urban environment.
StreetStage is a beautiful platform and bandshell high enough to attract a crowd and yet...
Thanks so much for jumping in here Street Stage! So proud to have you in SF.
