Austin, Texas or Austin Alley? You Make The Call

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Is this a scene from Austin Texas or Austin Alley in San Francisco?

Of course the parking spaces out in front of this banal building have the requisite brace of yuppy imports (Subaru, BMW, Mercedes, Acura), but there’s also a couple of pick-em-ups in there too, and Texans love their pickups. Let’s look for more clues.

Mmmm, there’s a Victorian in the background next door, and all the license plates say “California” and there’s that San Francisco-looking AUSTIN sign too – that all adds up to the 415.

But whoever thought it was a good idea to build suburban-style housing/parking like this in San Francisco has clearly made a  huge mistake.

Oh well.
