Nook offers a free app called "pocket penguins", it give three live webcams of the penguin exhibit at the academy of sciences and it is wonderful. This book is o.k., however the interactive map of Golden Gate Park is interesting. A little history of the concourse where the academy of sciences and the deYoung museum are located would have been nice. Although the academy of Sciences and the deYoung museum are not the original structures, the buildings which were built in those two locations were part of the 1894 Mid-Winter Exposition. This was a fair that was promoted by deYoung but detested by John McClaren, the chief landscaper of Golden Gate Park. He detested having any buildings or statuary in "his" park.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
