About Embarcadero, CA

The Embarcadero is the eastern waterfront and roadway of the Port of San Francisco, San Francisco, California, along San Francisco Bay, constructed atop an engineered seawall on reclaimed land, and derives its name from the Spanish verb embarcar, meaning "to embark". Embarcadero itself means "the place to embark".

The Embarcadero continues north past the Ferry Building at Market Street, Fisherman's… Excerpted from Wikipedia
