SAN FRANCISCO — The skyscraper came late to this city, a shipping and manufacturing hub for much of its existence. The wealthy roosted on the hills, and the masses toiled on the flats and the docks. Everyone lived close to the ground in a setting renowned for its natural beauty.
"San Francisco’s Skyline, Now Inexorably Transformed by Tech" is from the December 29, 2017 Business section of The New York Times. It was written by David Streitfeld and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
