The Best San Francisco NIMBYs I’ve Ever Seen – Picking Up Garbage Near Twin Peaks in the Rain for No Pay

This couple might not necessarily be NIMBYs, but they had that look about them. You know, wealthy, white, weathered, high probability of real estate ownership, and they were, quite literally, West of Twin Peaks, that kind of deal.

But, you know, as I passed them by I didn’t hear them yammering or complaining or saying how great they are or fighting other NIMBY groups or anything like that.

They were just spending the morning of New Years’ Day 2011 methodically picking up garbage on both sides of Twin Peaks Boulevard.

In no way, shape, or form will this selfless effort increase the value of their landholdings.

And there was nobody there to take photos for later use in a newsletter or on the internet to show how great and awesome their NIMBY group is.

I’m baffled.

Either they are the best NIMBYs we have, or they aren’t NIMBYs at all. Or maybe it was just a dream

It’s a mystery.

    That’s lame criticism of people who care enough about their surroundings and the city to step out in the cold and collect garbage.
    You come off as an ally of the too-hip-for-the-room fellow tenants in my building; they refuse to bend over and pick up a piece of paper in the lobby, empty the lint filter in the dryer, compost or recycle, but they pretend they’re landed gentry when they strut out of the building.
    WTF is wrong about caring for where you live?

    Yeah, I don’t like the NIMBYs…

  4. Sue Nahmy says:

    Yeah, the city is infested with NIMBYs, but calling these two that, just because they were picking up the trash that inconsiderate scum lay down is bullshit.

  5. sfcitizen says:

    The question of their NIMBYhood is left wide open, is it not?

    NIMBYs the town over think that they are just like this couple.

    But real NIMBYs are nothing like this couple, IRL.

    That’s the point.
