Treasure Island is for the most part abandoned. The Island started life as a spot for the World’s Fair of 1939. Much of the Island was created on existing muscle shoals located in San Francisco bay. The landfill from the building of the Oakland Bay Bridge was then trucked in and dumped into the shoals. After the 1939 World’s Fair, the city of San Francisco had plans to use it as an airport, but then WWII happened and the island was turned over to the military to use as a base. The base closed down in the 1990’s and has many abandoned buildings.
This is by far the biggest abandonment I have ever seen! Everywhere you look are rows and rows of buildings that are boarded up.
The California coast is littered with old WWII bunkers. At the time, America feared attack from foreign entities so the US Government poured millions of dollars into building them. many of the bunkers are abandoned the bunkers you see here are now a park near the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Even during war time, I want to think the soldiers who were stationed here must have loved the view!
