the 1st and 4th photos are the embarcadero. The 3rd may be the embarcadero while it is being removed; you can see there is no debris on the ground. The 2nd photo is 880. You can compare the spacing of the vertical supports between the 2nd and 4th photos to see they're different.

Here is a shot of the 880 damage that shows the same billboard (with the cartoon fork lift) that is shown in the 2nd photo on the page you linked

Yeah, your probably right. It's been so long. I do remember to get into the city you had to use the 280 side by Daly City. All access on the Bay Bridge side was closed off.

Can't have a film in SF without showing the Golden Gate Bridge. Most of it been damaged or destroyed.

I tried a similar joke in the “favorite LA movie” thread. It went over like a lead balloon...
