    Lucas originally wanted this location [] for his monument to himself. It's in open space in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, with unobstructed views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay, and Alcatraz. That's one of the great urban waterfront public spaces of the world. So that plan was very unpopular in SF. Another location was proposed, some unused piers a few miles down the waterfront in the tourist waterfront area, but that wasn't dramatic enough for Lucas.
