This Throwback Thursday, we celebrate the Window on the Bay project - the crown jewel of the public open space along our waterfront. Originally conceived in 1939, this project provided tremendous public viewing as well as public access opportunities along our main traffic artery, Del Monte Avenue. This project had the two-fold purpose of providing waterfront and recreational access, and allowing the City to make traffic safety improvements to the central portion of Del Monte Avenue.
The Project is divided into two areas. The "West Project Area" which extends from near Wharf #2 to Park Avenue. The "East Project Area" which extends from Park Avenue to Sloat Avenue.
