Electricity Parasite, 94117

I see people like this all the time.

Poor devils:

Myself, I got a couple of these (if necessary, though usually they are not) (and while we’re at it, one of these, too) for my years-old mobile, so you won’t catch me trying to look under your bus seat for an outlet or, as here, siphoning juice, the precious juice, from outside the Lucky Super.

OMG, I’m Confused: Rent a Tiny “Sleeping Room” on Page Street for $1250/Mo? But What About Rent Control?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

[UPDATE:  It's back, after being hounded off of CL - here it is for the low, low price of $995 per month as of August 4, 2014.]

Or $1150, that’s the latest price for 1880 Page Street #3B. Excerpts from craigslist:

Large sleeping room has newer carpet, sink with granite counter & closet. There is a shared hall bath. No Kitchen.
This is a rent control apartment.
Students, international students, co-signers all welcome.
Studio / 1 Bath in Haight Ashbury
Rent: $1,150
Square feet: 200″

So I’m thinking there’s gotta be a kitchen associated with this apartment somewhere, right?

Hey, what about 1880 Page Street #3A?

Well, I think I’ve found the kitchen.

Mmmm. It might be hard to believe but when we were deep into our Great Recession back in aught-ten, you could rent a two-bed on Page in the Upper Haight for a mere $1600 per month. See?

“Price: $1,595
2 Bedrooms
1 full Bathroom
650 sqft”

If this two-bedroom unit rented for $1600 back in 2010 and the same tenant(s) is/are still there, then the current rent is going to be $1600-something per month, let’s guess, assuming no pass-throughs from the landlord.

Let me now direct you to Topic No. 359: Section 6.15c(3) Petitions Based on Proportional Rent.

Uh oh.

But hey, maybe a new master tenant moved in to the two-bed just this year in high-rent 2014. In that case the rent could be what, like $4000 per month? IDK, I’m not up on things, pricewise. Anyway, imagining this, then maybe $1,000 or $1,250 or something like that per month is a fair price for just 30% of the apartment?

But then, no kitchen.

Uh oh:

California Civil Code section 1941 states that when a landlord rents property to a tenant as a place to live, the property must be in a “habitable” condition. (“Habitable” means fit to live in; “uninhabitable” means not fit to live in.) Section 1941 also states that the landlord must repair problems that make the property uninhabitable – except for problems caused by the tenant or the tenant’s guests, children or pets. In order for the property to be habitable, it must have … [a] kitchen with a sink, which cannot be made of an absorbent material (for example, wood)…”

Oh, and lastly, “SLEEPING ROOM?” Hey, you’re a naive international student right? Well, here’s your new sleeping room, hurray!

In the words of John Malkovich, WTF to that.

Or maybe Unit #3 used to be a three bedroom?

In closing, “Amenities:  Carpet”

In closing, never forget Kitchens.

Master with Student in Golden Gate Park – One In Very Good Shape and the Other Trying to Get In Very Good Shape

Friday, July 25th, 2014

I’ll tell you, Gentle Reader, I’ve lived in this town longer than you, but I’ve never witnessed people exercising by holding their arms up like Sutro Tower until just recently.

(My best guess is this is something to do with the Bollywood Dance Workout – Slumdog.)

And then there’s was this ritual – passersby were gawking:

I’m thinking the number one requirement to be an aerobics instructor or personal trainer is being in very good shape and, actually, I don’t know if there are any other requirements – maybe just being in very good shape yourself is all that’s necessary…

Newly-Installed SFPD Park Station Captain Raj Vaswani vs. the Day Campers of the 94117

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Here’s Captain Vaswani of Park Station. See his greeting to the community below.

And here’s yesterday’s meeting on homelessness and other matters at Park Station:

“Discussing HOT teams and homelessness in the Haight Ashbury with @BevanDufty at Park Station tonight.”

And here’s the SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS OUTREACH TEAM (SFHOT).

And here are some recent day-campers in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park – they had an especially charismatic dog:

What does this all add up to? IDK.

The business owners on Haight and the homeowners groups are looking for changes on how SFGov handles the homeless. Who knows if they’ll get that.

In any event, here’s the schedule for community meetings:

Day: 2nd Tuesday of the month
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Place: Park Station

“Good afternoon from Park Police Station! My name is Raj Vaswani and I am honored to be your new Captain here in the vibrant Park District.

I know I have not yet attained ‘Legend’ status, which Captain Corrales held. If I stay the full 45 years, I have some time to work on becoming a legend. I wish Captain Corrales a well deserved retirement and I know he worked hard and was very passionate about fighting crime through-out his career. I personally know many of the officers & supervisors here at Park Station and I can tell you is that you are in very good hands; We have Officers with experience that love to work in the Park District.

My background is 20+ years in policing. I have worked as an officer at the old Potrero Station, Southern Station, Northern Station, and specifically the Northern Station Street Crimes Under-cover Unit. I was promoted while at Northern Station then worked 8 years in Investigations Bureau as a Inspector. I worked at Ingleside and Southern as a patrol supervisor, then a Patrol Lieutenant in the Mission.

I have also worked for the Deputy Chief as a Lieutenant in Administration Bureau. I’ve worked closely with DPW on the new Police Headquarters Building and the Sixth Street Substation. I’ve worked collaboratively with the San Francisco City Attorney and Treasurer on business regulations and permit matters. My last assignment as Lieutenant was for the Chief’s Office as the Commanding Officer for the Legal Division. In this position I had the unique opportunity to represent the department in civil litigation, arbitration and mediation in Federal Court. Lastly, I was recently the citywide Night Captain where I managed in-progress incidents and nightclub-related deployment of officers. Working in this capacity I had the unique opportunity to patrol the entire city and meet many of the new officers in our department.

I look forward to serving your needs as the Captain of Park Station. I have already reached out to some of the businesses, organizations, and Supervisors that represent the Park District. Today, I will be walking Haight Street and hope to meet some of the residents and businesses that represent this historic neighborhood . I’m a strong believer that the police are a part of the fabric of the community, but the neighborhood groups, merchants associations, residents, and visitors also play an important part in our success; I intend to continue having a positive collaborative relationship with the community!

Please consider coming to our evening National Night Out Event on Aug. 5th! (More info to follow,

And speaking of following….. feel free to follow me on twitter! http://twitter.com/sfvas ). I hope to use Social Media to stay connected to you all.

Sincerely,

Captain Raj Vaswani”

Amazingly, Our Local Postal Service Opens Its Doors Earlier on a Saturday Than UPS Does Monday Through Friday

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Here you go, here are the hours for USPS Clayton Station 94117 in the Upper Haight:

Compare that with the opening time for the big UPS Customer Center at 320 San Bruno Ave.

Well forget about Saturday ’cause the UPS aint even open on Saturdays. And M-F, the UPS begrudgingly opens at 9:30 AM.

I’ll tell you, a few decades back, UPS outperformed the Post Office in all aspects. But these days, for a lot of aspects, it’s hard to tell much of a diff.

IMO.
