These 5 Abandoned Places In San Francisco Are Absolutely Haunting

The booming tech economy means a lot of former abandoned places (like creepy hospitals in the Presidio, the Transbay Terminal, the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, and the Fleishhacker Pool) have mostly been taken over by real estate developers (or the SF Zoo for that last one). It also means high rent and plenty of empty storefronts and countless “Retail for Lease” signs. But there are some especially haunting abandoned places in San Francisco worth a little more exploration. Some require a ferry, while others simply require some serious nerve.
