Now: The door between Bayview and the rest of San Francisco opened slightly with introduction of the Third Street (T) Muni Line, marginally softening its reputation as toxic and dangerous corner of the city. Bleak beauty and photo opportunities exist all along water's edge. Adjacent Hunters Point contains a former navy shipyard, now an artist colony.

Then: The naval reservation and shipyard at Hunters Point dates back to 1870. Both navy and commercial vessels used the port until 1974.

How To Get There: Third Street and the T-Muni line run directly into Bayview near the south terminal at Sunnydale Station. Hunters Point and the shipyard can be reached from Evans Avenue off of Third Street. This leads into Innes Avenue, which goes into Hunters Point.
