The sandy, marshy soils of the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula discouraged the Spanish, and later Mexican governments from establishing a preeminent town there, who focused their pueblo settlement efforts in the Pueblo of San José with its extremely fertile land. It wasn't until 1835 that the first settlers established themselves on the shore of Yerba Buena Cove, with the first town plan surveyed in 1839. 79X Candlestick Express Sutter and Sansome Candlestick Park Financial District (Financial District, San Francisco), South of Market (South of Market, San Francisco) Route map (PDF) -

and job seekers from a multitude of countries. Following Californian independence (California Republic) and American annexation and the California Gold Rush, the area boomed rapidly and the Bay shoreline, which originally ended near Montgomery Street, was filled in and extended to The Embarcadero. Gold Rush wealth and business made it the financial capital of the west coast as many banks and businesses set up in the neighborhood. The west coast's first and only skyscrapers, were built in the area along Market Street (Market Street (San Francisco)). The neighborhood was completely destroyed in the 1906 Earthquake and Fire (1906 San Francisco earthquake) (although miraculously, the area's skyscrapers survived). By 1910, the area was largely rebuilt with low-rise, masonry-clad buildings ranging from six to twelve stories in height. 79X Candlestick Express Sutter and Sansome Candlestick Park Financial District (Financial District, San Francisco), South of Market (South of Market, San Francisco) Route map (PDF) -

frequently met with criticism, unavoidable due to problems of accountability and corruption that plagued the department early in its inception. In 1937, an investigation, referred to as the "Atherton Report"PKFHSPKFHS books view 131865 by District Attorney Matthew Brady (Matthew Brady (district attorney)) found that more than $1 million per year was being pocketed by officers from regular payoffs by prostitution, gambling and other criminal interests. It has also dealt with attacks such as the Preparedness Day Bombing in 1916 and the San Francisco Police Department Park Station bombing in the 1960s by leftist radicals (Political radicalism). Recent examples of controversy include police shootings, the reaction to Critical Mass bicycle rides and protests in the Financial District (Financial District, San Francisco) against U.S. foreign policy. Surprisingly the rate of complaints against officers and "excessive force" cases are lower relative to other big-city departments, such as the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department), the NYPD, or CPD. Nevertheless, the city retains one of the highest complaint rates; particularly when analyzed on a per-capita basis, factoring in the relatively small population of San Francisco compared to Los Angeles or New York. This could be attributed to several factors, including the dramatic increase of so called "transient population," or those coming to visit the city, (increasing the population to approximately 1.3 million), or the proactive nature of the Office of Citizen Complaints, or OCC. The OCC, created by San Francisco City Charter, has been known to solicit complaints from people contacted by police, and while the initial complaint volume appears high, the actual volume of sustained complaints against officers is very low for a department of its size. 79X Candlestick Express Sutter and Sansome Candlestick Park Financial District (Financial District, San Francisco), South of Market (South of Market, San Francisco) Route map (PDF) -

Financial District, San Francisco

The '''Financial District''' is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California, that serves as its main central business district. It is home to the city's largest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms, insurance companies, real estate firms, banks, savings and loans, and other financial institutions. All six San Francisco Fortune 500 companies—McKesson (McKesson Corporation), Wells Fargo, PG&E Corporation, Gap (Gap Inc.), URS Corporation, and Charles Schwab (Charles Schwab Corporation)—are located in the district.

The area is marked by the cluster of high-rise towers in the triangular area east of Grant Avenue, south of Washington Street, west of the Embarcadero (Embarcadero, San Francisco) that rings the waterfront, and north of Market Street (Market Street (San Francisco)). The city's tallest buildings, including 555 California Street and the Transamerica Pyramid, and many other tall buildings, such as 101 California Street and 345 California Street are located there. Montgomery Street (sometimes called "Wall Street of the West") is the traditional heart of the district.

Since the 1980s, restrictions on high rise construction have shifted new development to the adjacent South of Market (South of Market, San Francisco) area surrounding the Transbay Transit Center (San Francisco Transbay development). This area is sometimes called the '''South Financial District''' by real estate developers, or simply included as part of the Financial District itself.
