Take a Look at Japantown in 1942: “Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer”Friday, August 1st, 2014
Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.
(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)
Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”
The Current La Playa Safeway is a Time Machine: It Will Take You Back – Visit Before It Gets Replaced, Replaced By ThisWednesday, July 9th, 2014
I guess the Safeway people have resolved not to put any more money into the La Playa store, and that makes sense considering that The Future is just around the corner.
The current set-up is straight outta the 1970′s and it looks it, for better or worse – it’s shabby-chic but without the chic:

But now she’s all like this, taken off of the street and placed indoors upstairs at the Brewhouse.
Note that the formerly-censored(?) bloodied bat has been restored. (That’s what makes her a Fury, IMO.)
Imagine that – the journey from street crime to high art took merely a half-year…

This new place on Fulton hasn’t even opened yet but it already has a five-star rating from Yelp, imagine that.
This particular block of Fulton is known for being home to a former Mayor’s formerly favorite corporate coffee house and what else? Oh, very expensive burritos. If you want, you can rent a big building a couple of doors down and open your own joint – just $18k a month in rent. And remember that big whorehouse that shut down a few years back?
What will happen next on the odd side of the 1700 block of Fulton across from the Lucky? Who knows.
But how about some window coverings, except why’d you install such big windows in the first place if you’re going to cover them up? Oh well.
