Scenes From A Giants Victory In The Castro
By Roy - Published on October 30, 2014.
Last night, as soon as the Giants claimed their third World Series Championship win in five years, Castro Giants fans poured into the streets at Castro Street and 18th Street, blocking traffic and chucking toilet paper rolls onto the Muni lines above.
Down in the Mission, the celebration took a dangerous turn with bottle throwing, bonfires, and one person shot (and transported to hospital with non life-threatening injuries). Muni temporarily suspended citywide bus service shortly after 10pm due to the celebrations.
The Castro kept it positive, however. City crews moved into the intersection of Castro and 18th shortly after 8:30pm to clear away some of toilet paper strung along the Muni wires and pounded on the horn several times in what seemed to be solidarity as fans cheered "Let's go Giants!"
Here are some photos and videos we've collected from the scene in the Castro:
Were you out in the neighborhood last night?
A new law took effect January 1 allowing streets with dining and retail to lower their speed limits, and San Francisco wasted no time implementing this on seven retail-heavy streets.
