Wednesday, 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…

A Banner Day for USF

Three hundred banners are spreading the good word about USF on the streets of San Francisco.

They feature 12 different vignettes with slogans like “Change the World From Here” and “Our After-School Program is Called Silicon Valley,” and are meant to enhance USF’s visibility in the city, showcase its diversity, and connect USF with the city’s booming tech industry.

The banners hang from light poles along major city streets and in high-traffic neighborhoods like SOMA, Civic Center, Mission Bay, and the Sunset. 

They were installed in October and will remain on display through April 2016.”
