Mission Creek is at the bottom; the SP Station is visible in the center. Townsend is the horizontal street at the top. Third Street runs vertically in the middle of the picture. The new Giants PacBell Ballpark is located on the right (east) of Third Street, just above the bridge over Mission Creek.
