What's open and closed at the San Francisco Ferry Building
In fact, the Ferry Building has remained open throughout the shelter in place. The city’s famous landmark holds a unique position for a few different reasons. The doors never closed to the interior of the building because unlike local malls and shopping centers that were forced to shutter, the Ferry Building is both a transit center and a dining hub, giving those essential food businesses the option of staying open for takeout and delivery. Additionally, it boasts a big outdoor space, with plenty of room for outdoor markets and outdoor seating, not to mention a beautiful (if brisk) view of the bay.
