Great space, lots of local shops and eateries. Crowded and hard to walk through at times with long lines at the bathrooms. Someone else suggested it was like Chelsey Market in NYC; I agree with the comparison.

We are returning to Pier 27 San Francisco at the end of a cruise and our flight isn't until late afternoon. Does anyone know if we can leave our luggage anywhere and suggest something to do before going to the airport?
