Near the base of Pier 14 lay a set of steps that used to lead down into the bay. Those steps are now fenced off because they are rusting and crumbling. Here was one such step, still wet from a high tide.

The original Transbay Terminal crossed Fremont Street supported by huge I-beam uprights along each side of the road. Those uprights were cut off as part of the teardown of the terminal. Here was the remains of one such I-Beam previously embedded in concrete.
