As you can see, there’s quite a difference.

Bi-Rite Market vs. Bi-Rite Market: Know the Difference – Balboa Out in the Richmond vs. the Regular KindMonday, September 26th, 2016
I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen this – a pizza delivery in the Western Addition flats, on McAllister near Fillmore. This has been a no-go area for some pizza places in Frisco for a long time. There’s a long history of this kind of delivery redlining – see some of it here, or even more here.
(IMO, Friendship Village(s) = The Projects.)
Here’s one current delivery map. It’s a tad embarrassing, you know, for all of us in Frisco, so you now have to request persimmon (Mmmm… persimmon) from the owner/manager of Amici’s Pizza to see it – that’s how embarrassing it is.
I’m not saying that this part of McAllister Street is particularly dangerous and I’m also not saying that big-city pizza delivery is particularly safe, I’m just saying I can’t ever recall seeing a Domino’s delivery in this area, in all my years.
Ugly New Statue Appears South of Market – Like the Goddess of Democracy But Without Arms – “Venus de Rent Control”Monday, June 13th, 2016
A little closer and now it looks out of focus, non? The buildings in front and behind look to be in focus, but not the thing itself.
And here it is. (I swear this is in focus.)
Anyway, just like the real Goddess of Democracy, this thing was made in China, for better or worse.
It Begins: SFMTA Rolls Over Irate Neighbors, Installs Corporate Shuttle Bus Depot on Fell Near MasonicTuesday, May 24th, 2016
Here’s the background and here’s what the first day of terminal operation looked like yesterday:
I didn’t see it in operation, but I did see a Nest* (wherever that is) Bus heading away from this area this AM so maybe this 116 feet will be a nest for Nest, and others. Who uses this terminal is a secret, kept by our incompetent SFMTA, for some reason.
I think all these pissed-off people would have needed the relevant city Supervisor to go to bat for them against the SFMTA. I suppose that didn’t happen.
(I’ll tell you, one block away on Hayes, there’s a bus stop for the #21 what’s nine (9) seconds away from another bus stop for the same line. Our weak-willed SFMTA wanted to get rid of one of the stops but a while back but a local bidness owner hired on craigslist to get a “grass-roots” campaign going to sway our swayable Supervisor London Breed. So that’s democracy in action, or not, depending on how you look at it.)
Anyway, the signs say that all this will expire on May 27th, 2016, so we’ll just have to wait and see what the SFMTA wants to do next. Perhaps they’ll install permanent signs soon, IDK…
*Yeah, I need me an expensive Nest thermostat for my 100 year old radiators – I’m sure that would work out real good.
