Curbed.com recently published an article that highlights the public sculpture “Language Of The Birds” as one of the must see spots in San Francisco:

” Paying homage to the North Beach neighborhood’s ethnic and literary roots, this permanent sculpture is a small but meaningful (not to mention eye-catching) installation. A collection of books evoke a flock of birds at the northwest corner of Columbus Avenue and Broadway, suspended above a plaza embossed with words in English, Italian, and Chinese — the languages spoken by many of the area’s residents. The words themselves are a nod to various literary luminaries tied to North Beach, and the illuminations are offset by a solar power collaboration with City Lights, a bookstore known for its focus on progressive politics across the street. ”
