Watch the famous San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge via webcam
The camera is located at the Bloomberg premises at Pier 3 situated in the eastern waterfront called The Embarcadero. This historic district of the Port of San Francisco offers a majestic view to The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, known locally as the Bay Bridge. Being one of the longest spans in the US, the bridge has two sections of roughly equal length. The older western section, officially known as the Willie L. Brown Jr. Bridge, connects downtown San Francisco to Yerba Buena Island and the newer unnamed eastern section connects the island to Oakland. Visible in our camera, Yerba Buena Island which is also known as Sea Bird Island, Wood Island, and Goat Island, is connected to Treasure Island. The population of both islands is ca. 2500 citizens.
In turn, the Treasure Island is famous as an artificial island specially built in 1936–37 for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition. The island has a marina and a bikeway connecting to the Eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
