Living in Frisco: Ten On-Street Parking Spaces, Five Broken Car Windows Over a Ten Day Period

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

This would be on about 100 feet of Ashbury in the 94117, both sides of the street, so generally you’ll have 4 or 5 rides parked there on both sides, so that’s ten spaces.

What do you think the report rate is for people who’ve lost a bunch of windows the past several years? I think it’s not high. So when the media / popo report on a reduction of car break-ins, I think they should take pains to specify it’s the reported rate what’s fallen.

Anyway, my advice would be to leave your glove box and consoles and coin trays open at night…

If you don’t get your bike back soon after its stolen, it’ll be broken up into parts and then become unrecoverable oh well…

A Rare Delivery in Frisco: Dominos Pizza in the Housing Projects of McAllister

Friday, September 16th, 2016

I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen this – a pizza delivery in the Western Addition flats, on McAllister near Fillmore. This has been a no-go area for some pizza places in Frisco for a long time. There’s a long history of this kind of delivery redlining  – see some of it here, or even more here.

(IMO, Friendship Village(s) = The Projects.)

Here’s one current delivery map. It’s a tad embarrassing, you know, for all of us in Frisco, so you now have to request persimmon (Mmmm… persimmon) from the owner/manager of Amici’s Pizza to see it – that’s how embarrassing it is.

I’m not saying that this part of McAllister Street is particularly dangerous and I’m also not saying that big-city pizza delivery is particularly safe, I’m just saying I can’t ever recall seeing a Domino’s delivery in this area, in all my years.
