The Remnants Of This Abandoned Landfill Near San Francisco Are Hauntingly Beautiful

Not far from San Francisco, on the west end of a peninsula that juts out from the east shore of the San Francisco Bay, you can find what locals call the “Albany Bulb.” The Albany Bulb is a former landfill largely owned by the city of Albany. While the former remnants of a dump may not sound too appealing, it’s actually become an eclectic place for exploration, contemplation, and artistic expression. Albany is also a great place to walk your dog and experience some of the most fabulous water-level views in the Bay Area.
