The Urban School Expands All the Way to Oak Street – Here It Is, You Won’t be Able to Miss It

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

The house you see on the left used to be on the right – they moved it east a good 40 yards to make way.

Let’s read them, from TK

a. Anywhere near an intersection.
b. Anywhere, at any time, on Fell, Oak, Gough, Franklin, Turk between Van Ness and Divisadero, any of those little tiny streets in Bernal Heights or those alleys in the Mission, or anywhere else you’re going to royally fuck up traffic.

You see how that works?

Do you want to be like Jim Jones?
