SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A medallion marking the geographic center of the city of San Francisco has been stolen.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Thursday (http://bit.ly/1PkBnWn ) that a brass surveyor’s disc was glued to the sidewalk for only a few days before someone pried it out. All that’s left now is a circular patch and the words “geographic center of city” shakily written in blue by surveyors.
City officials had just visited the medallion on Wednesday, in a neighborhood between the Castro and Twin Peaks. On it were the words “geographic center.”
