Cow HollowIn the 1800’s vegetable gardens and dairy farms in Cow Hollow feed the
citizens of the then perceived remote city near by, San Francisco. Close
by was the underwater soon to be land filled district that housed the
1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. A magnificent structure, the Palace of
Fine Arts, designed by Bernard Maybeck stands today. Filled with many
Mediterranean-style flats and apartments, the once sleepy commercial street
Chestnut St. is now the busy commercial thoroughfare on which many small
restaurants, old deli’s, upscale retail stores such as Pottery Barn preside.
The Marina greens give way to kite flying, volleyball games, endless dog
walkers, a nest where many of the privileged can dock their sailboats
at the St. Francis Yacht Club and breathtaking views of the Golden Gate
Bridge and Marin County.
