Mission Statement

A peaceful enclave, free of all traffic, the The Poets Plaza will be an essential link between the neighborhood's major thoroughfares, Grant and Columbus Avenues, with their excellent restaurants and fine shops. The Plaza will be located in the 600 block of Vallejo Street, between the landmark National Shrine of Saint Francis and Caffe Trieste, historic bohemian gathering place.


Inspired by the lovely piazzas of Italy, this public square will be an oasis for San Franciscans and world travelers. Beautifully resurfaced and tiled, the street will be transformed into an inviting community park, with small trees, and flowering plants. The plaza will also honor San Francisco's first poet laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, as well as the community of North Beach.

Description

The Poets Plaza is a civic project to be created by neighborhood volunteers, donations, and community grants. The North Beach Merchants Association, Telegraph Hill Dwellers, the Chinatown Community Development Center, North Beach Citizens and hundreds of local residents have already offered their endorsements of the project.
