Or as a solid as a rocklike appliqué can be, you know, hanging off the side of a Victorian house.
Note – GOD IS REAL
Get up-to-speed on the massive Urban School Oak Street expansion here and also from Camden Avery at the Hoodline
This has been the scene in the Upper Haight / SoPA (South of Panhandle Area – srsly, some people actually use this term) lately:
And here’s how things looked yesterday – we’re all set to go:
See that, the entire crib has been mounted on rails. The entire house is going to start moving today, Monday, July 20th, 2015 at 8:00 AM, or at least that was the plan at the close of bidness a few days ago.
Here’s your detail:
All right, bon courage L’ecole Urbaine!
Where they’ll move it to – no one can say:
It won’t be long now…
And here’s Carl Fredricksen’s house in the east bay as seen from a scene in Up
And this is 1637 Oak as it looks right now – The Urban School’s Oak Street Project worksite complete surrounds the place now:
It was built in 1904 – this is no way to celebrate your eleventy-first birthday, I’ll tell you. All the deets:
(Well, that’s what they call obsolete in the real estate biz.)
Anyway, this house is empty now, and they’re fixing to move it someplace, I don’t know where, this summer.
Then this parcel will look like this, sort of:
(I’d add about ten times as many cars to this depiction, but that’s just me.)
IDK how they’ll move it – I suggest balloons:

Oak Street Project In the News
Well, here’s the question:
And here’s the answer: One Million Dollars
You know, for a really small one.
Oh, I have some notes:
1. The IS is a “recently-discovered” gem? Um, no.
2. And just saying, but not capitalizing the word “Realtor” is among the most serious crimes in the RE racket. Of course this article has been fixed already, but I’ll give it a try: realtor. [R]ealtor, realtor, realtor!
3. And when people talk about “good Realtors,” does that imply that there are bad realtors out there? Who are they? I want names.
4. And, speaking of good and bad, the odds of a kid of the Inner Sunset getting admitted to the “good” elementary school in the area, you know, assuming you put it down as your #1 choice in the public school “lottery,” are one in 500, like literally. Oh, so that’s why the word “school” wasn’t mentioned once in the entire ad / marketing effort / article?
5. And hey, is like right now a “good time to buy” residential real estate? Oh, it is? And actually it’s a “great time to buy?” OK then. (NB: All realtors always say “it’s a good time to buy” in the area where they sell. Always. I’ll just point out that, at least sometimes, this is 100% incorrect.)
6. And four photos but only one with fog? OK fine!
Here you go, 2622 Jackson in Pacific Heights. It was the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco until just after the start of WWII. And how do you get rid of your papers back in ’41 before you leave town all of a sudden? You burn them, the same way diplomatic staff did all over America, like in DC and New Orleans.
And then Harry Potter director Chris Columbus bought the place – I don’t know where he lives now…
What will happen next at this grand stone palace…
