Do I have this right? Take a look:
Like I said, I’ve never seen this kind of wake-up call…
Add this to the list of McD’ses (Pine, Market, Grant, Mission, the list goes on) what have failed in Frisco:
This was the scene yesterday. And this here was from a few days back.

Yes, that black Lincoln SUV thing is a stretched limo. It stopped in the new bike lane, as you can see.
Some in town would want the driver to double park far to the left in the slow lane so as to not block the now-sacrosanct new bike lane. Now I think that would be illegal, as is of course what the driver has done here:
So after all that, my question remains Where is This Limousine Supposed to Offload Passengers in Front of Our State Building on Golden Gate? I’m not really seeing any real legal options here. So parking as far to the right as practical seems like the least bad choice…
Here’s the scene at Golden Gate and Van Ness, with the vacant McD’s to the left and newly-placed construction trailers to the right. But it turns out that the trailers are just there for the multiyear Van Ness BRT project, which will finish sometime in the 2020’s…
First, the corner of Golden Gate and Leavenworth was all like this:
But then it got hounded by SFGov, so it went away
And then, oddly, it became 826 Valencia:
But around the corner, you see that BIG BOY MARKET is still making money off of the intersection of Golden Gate and Leavenworth, through advertising:
Hey, do I question whether the “real problems” of the Twitterloin originate(d?) from a “handful of lawless corner stores” the way CWNevius says?
For a few days anyway, you’d see just a pair of white safe hit posts from the SFMTA here at the foot of Golden Gate near Market. But then along comes the unofficial SFMTrA to put the unofficial orange cones, which instigated the SFMTA into putting in the white posts, back up.
So this is how the story ends, with the lazy SFMTA asking for more money to do what it’s paid to do already and some dude maintaining the orange cones on a regular basis…
(Young Bart Simpson had good reason to break a window here, but then he went too far – “smashy smashy.”)
I’ll tell you, I see more broken auto glass on the Streets of San Francisco by 9:00 AM than most people see all day. And yesterday, I saw the most broken auto glass in one day in Frisco than I ever have before.
Hence this photo. What do you see here, Gentle Reader? What if somebody ordered you to, “Fix this” ‘n stuff? Where would you start? Like, what do you see here?
How many people do you see here, just after sunrise? (There are at least four.)
