How the SFMTA Got Me – I Mistakenly Blocked 30 Feet of the Western Addition from Street Sweeping – Street TreesTuesday, January 27th, 2015
Here’s what the signs look like around the corner:
Good, because it was a Friday.
Oh, here we go:
But then you get a ticket, anyway.
Whoops. Here’s what the signs actually say:
(At least this street tree didn’t topple over and kill me, as street trees have killed and injured so many others.)
I can tell you chapter and verse about this nabe, mostly about who got shot where, but I haven’t kept up with the street cleaning signs….
Allow me to explain, Gentle Reader.
This driver’s heading south on Masonic. See what s/he did? S/he “blocked the box” because of carelessness. You gotta look ahead to see if the intersection will clear by the time your light turns red. It’s Da Law. This is what I mean when I say too aggressive.
On the other hand, drivers heading north on Masonic sometimes want to turn left onto Fell. Sometimes these people don’t commit to making the turn by entering the intersection. Instead, they hang back by the crosswalk about 40 feet from where they should be, srlsy. Ppl, you gotta commit to the turn, you gotta be more aggressive.
Metal SFMTA Sign: “SCOTT ST. TRAFFIC CIRCULATION CHANGES” – But Shouldn’t It Say “TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS” Instead?Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
I think so.
Oh here we go:
“Scott Street will no longer be a convenient route for driving in the southbound direction.”
What the SFMTA is saying here is:
Scott Street will no longer be a possible route for driving in the southbound direction.
Hey SFMTA, instead of all this, why don’t you say what you mean and mean what you say?

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.

You can see the flat spots on the left there – Golden Gate Park and The Presidio.
Of course the high-rise blocks are features of Randy Shaw‘s corrupt Twitterloin, aka the Mid-Market area, aka NeMa (“New Market”), aka The Tenderloin, aka The Yammerloin, aka The “Uptown” Tenderloin, aka Skid Row, aka Sixth Street, aka Lower Nob Hill, aka “Downtown.”

Whether it’s to open something new or to hunker down until better times I don’t know.
Anyway, it used to be like this but now it’s like this:
