Well, I guess I'm the only one here who actually likes the new De Young. I found it fascinating to walk through with the highlight being the view from the observatory tower. Those of you who haven't been up the tower must go -- San Francisco looks beautiful.
Now, mind you, I LOVED the old De Young (spent much of my childhood there) and miss it terribly. The new museum will never compare. However, when I think of the current museum is something new and totally different from the old(perhaps they should have renamed it), I enjoy it.
By the way, the Fontana towers, "Jack Tar/Cathedral Hotel" and Sutro Tower must go...
