A Sign of the Times – Empty Parking Spaces on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset

The once-bustling, prideful Inner Sunset area of San Francisco is now just like the Land of Wind and Ghosts due to our recent economic problems. You won’t find six empty parking spaces a stone’s throw away from num num Park Chow restaurant at 9:00 PM on a weekend night, but during the week, maybe you will.

Thusly. Click to expand:

At least we still have the swirling fog on most nights. Brrrr.

Cue tumble weeds…

    Strange that I would see this post at the same time I am watching “What Would Jesus Buy?”. Rough times out there for the shops in the Inner Sunset. We’ve lost so many stores within a couple blocks of 9th/Irving in the last year – the bookstore, couple of restaurants, the old (repair?) shop that I never once went in.

    Reports of the demise of this area are greatly exaggerated…True PJs closed buy that had as much if not more to do with problems that particular place had. Likewise the brewery closed but that was mostly because they were getting gouged on rent and their service declined as they cut staff .

    Pacific Catch is doing fine. The Blackthorn is full most nights and Ebisu still fills up despite the remodel . There are plenty of other parts of SF that are doing much worse, and I think it is a bit much to make a grand gerneralization about a neighborhood based on one picture…

    All right, it’s just that I’ve never ever seen free parking spaces like this available near Park Chow since it opened a dozen years ago.

    I’ll check it out again tonight.
