RINCON POINT PHOTOGRAPH AND INFORMATION:

[Rincon Point - 1852] The aerial photograph (top) was taken October 5, 1991. Most, but not all, of the Embarcadero Freeway had been knocked down.

[What Rincon Point probably looked like] At one time Rincon Point was located where Rincon Hill met the bay at what is now the intersection of Spear and Harrison streets (right). That original craggy point probably looked like this (left). Now it is where the Embarcadero passes underneath the Bay Bridge. Rincon Point and Telegraph Hill formed the original inlet that provided 49ers with additional protection for their ships. This inlet, upon which many downtown highrises have been built, reached all the way west to where the Transamerica Pyramid is today. Click on the map to see a larger version.

Precise high and low tide information for the area is available at this website.
