Perhaps these new signs could be plugged into a Waze or Google Maps app?

IDK, if the NoPA part of the Western Addition is so hot hot hot lately, you’d think that this space at 803 Divisadero near Fulton would have gotten a lease deal going by now.
The sign what’s still in the window:
Before, it was Film Yard Video (parting shot: “NETFLIX IS EVIL!”), then it was a illegal condo/supposed tarot reading place (you know, yet another one of those joints), and now it’s a black hole sucking energy from the “DivCo” “Streetscape” just south of North of NoPA.
(Oh what’s that, you’re not interested ‘cuz you want to run a full-on restaurant? Well, 1751 Fulton is just around the corner (sort of ) and it’s still available after years and years of slumber. But instead of $6k per month, it would run you $18k…)
Twitterloin Update: Adieu Big Boy Market – More Uncritical Source Greasing from CW Nevius – La Muerte del Niño GrandeTuesday, March 10th, 2015
Here’s a statement about the northern Twitterloin from CW Nevius in“Tenderloin nonprofits vs. bad apple corner stores:
“He hired a security guard and installed lights and cameras, but he and the people at the neighborhood’s other service agencies know where the real problems originate — the handful of lawless corner stores.
So, the “real problems” of the Tenderloin originate from a handful of lawless corner stores?
The test will be when the handful of corner stores get shut down and then the New Day doesn’t dawn, of course.
(One supposes that Nevius needs to “add drama” in order to justify his high-salary, low-effort gig.)
Now obvs, if SFGov is sufficiently motivated, it can “dramatically” change the character of a high-crime corner or a block pretty much at will. (Like at Jones and Market, the former open-air, stolen iPhone Apple store in front of the check-cashing place. Post an officer not just for one shift, but for all shifts and then people will get the message to move on.) But I’m skeptical of SFGov doing much more than that, of it “bringing a new day” to the TL. I heard the same type of thing when I lived in the area, back before Nevius white-flighted to The Creek in the East Bay, and periodically I keep hearing the same-old-same-old from some of the bad apple service agencies that Nevius is in communication with. (You know, like the one with the chief exec who sometimes threatens to sue and almost always belittles The Neviusese’s employer, for instance.)
Naive newcomer Nevius is far more optimistic than I on this score.
In any event, if SFGov can shut down an individual store and CW Nevius wants to cheerlead from his empty nest condo in SoSoMA, that’s fine. But it’ll be a long wait for a “new day” in the TL.
Background: The Big Boy Market at 180 Golden Gate is no more as of 2014.
And here’s a shot I took, from 2011 – it seemed to piss off the people hanging about. (Everything’s filtered ‘cept for the DRUG-FREE SCHOOL ZONE (or should it have been SCHOOL-FREE DRUG ZONE?) sign:

Hey Nevius, why don’t you spend a Night in the Twitterloin ala this guy? You know, have a hat cam on, or have a drone hovering overhead to record your interactions. Or, just keep on doing the same old, waiting for Randy Shaw to email you with his latest Crusade, that kind of thing. I suppose you get paid the same either way…
Well, it happens a lot ’round here
And if you think peace is a common goal
That goes to show how little you know
Well, I’d rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbor
I’d rather not get involved
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice, very nice, very nice, very nice
But maybe in the next world
First SF Loses Its Hooters and Now This: Dick’s Last Resort Shutters After Six Months – Who’s Next for 353 Jefferson?Wednesday, January 14th, 2015
Of course, our Hooters was having to deal with some wage and hour lawsuit issues when it went away, but one supposes the rents up there at 353 Jefferson were too high for them to keep on keeping on.
This was the replacement – Dick’s Last Resort. It lasted six months.
I can’t imagine locals going to 353 Jefferson for any kind of restaurant, and the tourists are probably heavier at the other end of the wharf, and the building is set back a ways from the sidewalk, so these can be challenges:
Who will try to make a go of it next at this cursed location?
The Thing About San Francisco’s Lands End is That It’s Basically One Giant Landslide Waiting to HappenWednesday, December 24th, 2014
Take a look here, from about a week ago, from a time just before the recent mini-slides shut the place down for the next ten days:
Imagine the trail before the big slide of long ago. Imagine a flat road connecting the foreground to the background hundreds of feet away – that’s what used to be there before, but now the trail goes up and around this location.
Lands End is just like Devil’s Slide.
It’s a tough place to maintain a road…
I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the mud-covered hills
‘Til the landslide brought me down
Single Tenant, net leased commercial property on a very large lot with excellent development potential for 23 residential units plus ground floor commercial. 25 car parking lot. Term of lease is based on exercise of option. CAP rate is market projection only. Current CAP rate is 4.02. Inner Richmond District
Good-bye, Mel’s. I’ll remember you for 50’s nostalgia and your gluten-free pancakes…
For the life of me, I can’t tell the difference between the bad, terrible, bumpy old Kezar (seen in the background) and the new, wonderful, freshly-paved Kezar (seen in the foreground), you know, except for the color.

So Yeah, Kezar Drive Will Be Closed Until July 3rd Starting Today, But Only at Night – From 9:00 PM to 6:00 AMMonday, June 23rd, 2014
[UPDATE: Here’s a FaceBook posting from June 20th, from a less-than-reliable-source, one that earlier stated that this job already would have been done by now, that I don’t think you could find even if you searched for it, that’s designed mostly to take credit for a “job well done” (as opposed to informing the affected public (most of whom don’t even live in District Five)), that doesn’t even mention the terms SFMTA or DPW, that I suppose is a kind of official notice.]
Earlier, I read this sign as Kezar Drive Closed From June 23rd to July 30th, so I was baffled as to why there was nothing posted online on this topic.
So now, after taking a photo and looking at it, I see that the closure is for just 11 scheduled days and only at night.

I’m still baffled as to why no SFGov entity has posted anything about this online, oh well.
Anyway, this thing kicks off tonight – here’s the foreperson getting ready for work.
