Now, let’s use the pejorative phrase Sunset Special in a sentence:

As people start families priorities change. Being close to the densest urban parts of SF starts to fade as a priority. Schools, safe streets, backyards with enough room for kids to play and homes larger than the typical Sunset special become higher priorities.

When Crybaby Millionaire Homeowners of the Western Addition Say That Bay To Breakers TRASHED Their Neighborhood, This is What They Mean

Monday, May 16th, 2016

This is pretty much the worst of it here, on Fell just north* of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

I’ll tell you, these generally wealthy, wizened, whites were more upset about BtoB back when some of them were temporarily upside down on their mortgages, say right around 2008-2010, but now things have improved for them so they’re less irate.

Still, they wake up and talk about how trashed things are, how oppressed they is.

And actually, this was one of the Fell Street party houses, so this is about as bad as things get anywho.

(All right, I gotta go. I’m closing a deal on a condo right under final approach for the long runways at SFO. And the funny thing is that I HATE HATE HATE airplane noise, but I figure I’ll start complaining so much that they’ll have to close down the whole airport and then my property’s value will climb. Anyway, that’s my plan – wish me luck! Oh, just joking. Hey, is now A Good Time To Buy? IDK. IDTS, but IDK. If you’re going to plant yourself for 30 years, then the answer is probably yes…)

*Really this is actual NoPA (North of Panhandle Area), which some people, and I’m srsly, now call West NoPA. But actually, NoPA is actually northeast of the Panhandle, so what these people are saying is west of north of east of the Panhandle, more or less, which is a little crazy but that’s how we roll in 2016
