Favorite thing: "The Runner" dominates the section of the Gateway Plaza known as Kiener Plaza. It's the work of a prominent sculptor from the first half of the 20th century, William Zorach. Zorach, born in Lithuania in 1887, immigrated to the US and took part in the famous Armory Show of contemporary art in 1913. Specializing in figurative art, he became a prominent figure in the metropolitan art scene of the 1920s and 1930s. He died in Maine in 1966.

Between 6th and 7th at Market Street.
