The Embarcadero (8)


Police Officer Virgil Tibbs, (Sidney Poitier) has a truck get in his line of fire at a bad guy at Pier 38, near today’s AT&T Park in the 1971 film ‘The Organization’ If you’re wondering why Pier 38 is near AT&T Park and Pier 39 near Fisherman’s Wharf at the other end of the Embarcadero, it’s because all piers south of the Ferry Building were even numbered, and those north of the building were odd numbered.
