Justin Herman Plaza information
The plaza across from the Ferry Building may not be much to look at – Vaillancourt Fountain was built to mirror the ugliness of the now-gone elevated freeway – but for years Justin Herman has been popular with lunchtime concert-goers, Critical Mass protesters, ice-skaters on the wintertime rink, and internet daters screening their dates from behind the fountain’s wall of water.
