ABC Broadcast Center is located on Front and Vallejo Streets in North Beach, San Francisco, where the studios of KGO-TV, ABC’s owned and operated local television station, branded as ABC 7, is based.
San Francisco channel KRON 4 also leases working and studio space in the same building, but as a competing TV station, their facilities are completely separate from those of KGO TV.
KGO-TV’s former sister radio station, KGO-AM, vacated its space in the building in 2011, moving into the broadcast facilities of its new owner Cumulus Media on Battery Street, San Francisco.
Alcatraz Island is reached by the Alcatraz Cruises ferry from Alcatraz Landing at San Francisco’s Pier 33, located on The Embarcadero near the intersection with Bay Street. The attraction is often fully booked so advance online bookings are advisable.
Public access to the top of Coit Tower is only by elevator which carries visitors 14 stories to the observation deck for 360 degree views over San Francisco. Elevator tickets are sold at the gift shop, or skip ticket lines by booking in advance online or by phone for a specific time and date.
