Does Mayor Ed Lee Actually Think That San Francisco is a “Safe City For All?” So, What’s Up With This?

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

You Make The Call on this one. From the official @mayoredlee Twitter:

Annced we’re moving fwd on 6th St Substation despite redevelopment dissolution. SF must remain a safe City for all.

All right, in order to remain “a safe city for all,” San Francisco must first be a safe city for all, correct?

So, is San Francisco “a safe city for all” right now?

Not at all, obviously.

Something is wrong here.

But hey, look, it’s the brand-new Dottie’s True Blue Cafe, with a bunch of tourists already hanging about on the sidewalk all the live-long day. (Man that’s going to be bad for certain peoples’ illicit activities, it goes without saying.) And you can’t miss Mobile Command Three parked right across the street:

I guess MC3 will have to do as we “move forward” on the long-delayed police substation.

That’s your Sixth Street Update.

Build It and They Will Come: Tourists Have Already Found the New Dottie’s True Blue Cafe on 6th Street

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Well, it will be tougher to murder people sight unseen at the corner of Sixth and Stevenson from now on, as this shot from Bluoz shows.

It’s Dottie’s!

You open on Friday and then have lines out the door on Saturday – that’s how it goes in the 415.

The East Side of Sixth Street From Market to Stevenson Alley in 2012: From Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers to Murder

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Well, let’s see how things look these days on one-third of one-half of the first block of troubled Sixth Street these days.

On the left you can find the current roost of Mobile Command Three from the SFPD. It’s probably there owing to the recent murder (San Francisco’s first and only for 2012 so far) at Stevenson and Sixth. If the cops wanted to have a substation in this area, they’d already have one in there, of course, so the 415′s littlest Mobile Command unit is a kind of temporary substitute.

And look, the poorly-managed and poorly-situated Passion Cafe is no more. The sign that used to be there is gone. Will tourist-beloved Dottie’s True Blue Cafe move in there soon? I don’t know.

And oh, the Happy Donuts has finally moved in from across the street and, of course, the SFGov-backed Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers is now firmly ensconced on the corner. It’s hard getting used to having a fast food burger chain in here:

So that’s what’s new in this active stretch of the corrupt Twitterloin.

Speaking of which, what’s up with this? Can you imagine going down to your local diner to get a malted or whatever and leaving your bike propped up against the building unlocked, thusly?

What is this, Mayberry, RFD or Osaka, Japan? I mean, I don’t think you can just leave your bike around on the sidewalk while you nosh on your twice-fried American fries, can you?

Well, I guess you can but it’s a good way to lose your ride with a quickness.

Or, maybe it’s a bait bike from the SFPD, put out there to see who would steal it? Anyway, it was there all by its lonesome for seven minutes at least, which has got to be some kind of record for Mid-Market. Hurray.

That’s your 2012 update for the heart of Mayor Ed Lee’s troubled Mid Market area…

Talk About the Passion (Cafe): Famous Dottie’s True Blue Cafe Heading South to Sixth Street Near Mid Market?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Four-star Yelp-rated Dottie’s True Blue Cafe has lost its lease up in the Tenderloin Proper, so, per Paolo Lucchesi and via The Tender, it’s going to be heading south of Market to the Tenderloin Annex.

Looks as if Sixth Street / Mid Market / the corrupt Twitterloin will go from this:
