Here’s what you do, you attach the lens of an old Google Glass onto the side of some Snapchat Spectacles and then put on a red Make America Great Again baseball cap and then sidle on into the ZG randomly saying, “OK Glass” every ten seconds or so and then see how that works out..
Our Heretonow Unleaseable Hibernia Bank White Elephant Now Marketed as ONE JONES – Let’s See If This HelpsMonday, February 27th, 2017
It’s not my job to spin all news about the historic Hibernia Bank into something positive and uplifting, so I won’t.
Just Asking: Is the Emptiness of Our Hibernia Bank a Sign of Yet Another Tenderloin “Rebirth” or Just the Opposite?Friday, February 3rd, 2017
So here’s a rich SFGov government contractor who lives in/partly(?) owns a house more expensive than yours somewhere in the East Bay, you know, the guy who wants us to get “beyond” Frisco’s Paper of Record (and who also has a history of threatening to sue our paper) and who now also wants us to cheer for the Tenderloin:

But now, one looks and sees this:
And that’s your Western Addition Update, North of NoPA / DivCo Edition…
THE URBAN SCHOOL Plants Itself Amongst the Victorians of Haight Ashbury – Fitting In On Oak – A Higher ProfileWednesday, November 9th, 2016
The 94117’s fantastically expensive private high school has completed its new building facing Oak:
This is the first I’ve seen the signage – URBAN in white. Well, it certainly is.
And the school mascot is “the Color Blue,” so that explains the blades what almost rise as high as the blue gum eucalyptus located right across the street in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.
Anyway, most people in Frisco aren’t familiar with this institution, but that might change with so many commuters using the Fell / Oak corridor on a daily basis…
