Transbay Terminal Historians (And Futurists) Take Note

Transbay Terminal Tours

It’s T-Minus two weeks until the closing of San Francisco’s Transbay Terminal, and this Friday (7/30) you're invited to "take a step back to celebrate the Transbay Terminal and its place in our City’s history" with guided tours of the Terminal including previously closed off areas such as "Cuddles Bar, the shoe shine shop and the Terminal jail."

Tours will run every hour on the hour from noon to 4 pm.

They are being rebranded as one of the attractions on the tour.

I'm going and I'll post pics on flickr.

I'm also going to count the times the docent says that a building "dialogs" with something else, or uses the word "massing."
