“New Market” Update: NeMa is LOCAL? CULTURE? AUTHENTIC? Nope! Plus a List of All the NeMA Hot Spots

Friday, May 24th, 2013

The street artists of Market Street are already reacting to the NeMa Building in the new, so-called “New Market” microhood.

Were these banners above the sidewalk of Market meant to be tagged? IDK

Similarly, the other banners are all “NEMA IS CULTURE” and “NEMA IS AUTHENTIC.”

I’ll tell you, you aint none of those things, NeMA Building. 

(Mmmm. if the inauthentic The Bold Italic website were a building, would it be the NeMA high-rise? We’ll just have to wait and see if NeMa loses its corporate owners millions of dollars a year, am I right girlfriend?)

Moving on…

Now, as promised, here’s the list of local, authentic, cultural hotspots of the NeMa area. It’s a short list. Just one entry, actually.

Right across the street from the NeMa Building site, here’s your Hotspot: 

Look for this place to be heavily featured in the next ridiculous marketing video.

Good luck with finding your identity, NeMa Building.

There’s Free WiFi in Japantown Courtesy of the Japanese Cultural and Community Center and AT&T? Hurray!

Remember that jackass mayor we had not too long ago? Remember all his unkept promises, like Citywide Wi-Fi for San Francisco?

I do. Bad times. I think it was 2005.

Anyway, these days the few areas around town you where you can rely on free govt. Wi-Fi are around federal housing projects. (One time my Samsung could see the Valencia Gardens WiFi all the way from Civic Center. Good times.)

Anyway, I guess “jtown connected” is the Wi-Fi you can get on Post in the Western Addition.

See?
