“The Commons” is Civic Center Plaza, UN Plaza, and Fulton Street between the Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Main Public Library. The Civic Center Commons Initiative is a collaborative effort to breathe new life into these central civic spaces, changing how people engage with the place and with each other.
