Last sunday, a big chunk of Third Street in the Bayview District was blocked off so people could walk, skate, ride bikes, etc. Above are the Frisco Bay Sting Rays, a group of vintage Schwinn enthusiasts.

Corporate presence: American Express set up a little basketball court, with a Golden State Warriors theme.

The Bayview Sunday Streets experience is uncrowded, and still quite flavorful.

Everyone had a great time.
