San Francisco is a “Transit First” City Except When It Comes to … Subsidized Housing Projects – Free Parking!

Loads of free parking, actually.

This used to be Octavia, BTW, before they paved commuter paradise and put up a parking lot:

It’s your very own gated community* in the otherwise high-rent* eastern Western Addition / western Civic Center / North of Hayes Valley area what’s just a five-minute walk from City Hall.

And sometimes there are two security guards standing on either side of this gate to welcome you home.*

(Bonus: Back in the day, my then-girlfriend’s then-20-something then-roommate had sex* with then-married, then-Mayor Willie Brown, high up there in one of the two cylindrical-type high-rises you can see camera right in the background. Isn’t that funny?*)

Anyway, when you hear the phrase “Transt First,” be sure to realize it means “Transit First Except For…”

*Sort of.

    well, much of the funding for those housing projects is federal/HUD. for example, SF rent control doesn’t apply there. There’s only so much input that SF has with these projects. No idea about parking tho

    Well, sure. Much of the funding for everything is/has been federal.

    Yep, no rent control, just like at the (foie gras-engorged) Presidio and TI

    Nice to see that someone finally responded to one of your scattershot attempts at journalistic muckraking. Congratulations! That means at least one other person besides me reads your blog.

    I’d rather have muckraking journalism than servile journalism (aka The Chron).
