It used to have a platform ‘n stuff and you could walk down some steps a good ways, but now this place is a nothingburger, just a wide spot on the path, with three benches:
That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

And as they say, “Bedrock, Baby!”
Get up to “speed” here.
Here we go – on JFK looking east towards Transverse / Crossover
And now close to Marx Meadow looking west – this one will be going in soon:
I guess this one will go almost all the way across JFK Drive:
And, now closer to 30th Avenue, looking east – this was the first to be installed, now with a new sign:
I don’t know when I’ll make it back here with a vehicle. IMO, 20 MPH or so is prolly the limit for you. (I had my decidedly non-sporty ride mistakenly set in SPORT mode, but I don’t think it makes much difference on a road regularity as big as this, but I’ll try it again sometime on my ride’s softest suspension setting.)
OTOH, if you have a brand-new BMW M4 GTS, how about 0 MPH as the limit?
And on bikes heading west, IDK. Look out, Jack, is all I can say.
I think the actual speed limit for the bumps is 25 MPH, but that seems too fast for IRL.
Our SFMTA has reported that some drivers go 32-34 MPH on this stretch of JFK and I’m sure these numbers come from someplace real, but I’m also sure whatever stat they’d report has been manipulated for their own purposes, oh well.
On It Goes…
Here it is:
These photos are from a few days back, and this bump / hump itself prolly was installed about ten days back. If you hit this thing at 25 + you will feel it, I promise you. My ride was practically made to handle something like this bump with aplomb, and I certainly felt it. Oh, and look, a speedometer system, of sorts:
Here’s the “near term” language, straight from our incompetent SFMTA.
I’ll tell you, not a whole bunch of drivers go signif more than 25 MPH on the JFK, despite what SFGov might tell you, or imply, with their nonsensical “some traffic travels through JFK at 32-38 MPH type” of stat. Well, sure, some traffic. I go through at exactly 25 which requires a touch of braking on the downhillier parts like near Speedway Meadow. (Hellman Meadow? I don’t think that’ll take for a good long time.) Anyway, if you get on my rear bumper I’ll simply pull over, pretending to get ready to park, and then pull back in after you’ve passed me. But I don’t do that too often.
(If you wanted to decrease illegal “speeding” on JFK, you’d raise the limit to 30 MPH and, conversely, if you wanted to, for some reason, increase illegal speeding on JFK, you’d lower the limit to 20 MPH.)
Anyway, if you want to lower speeds on JFK, you’d put in a brace of speed bumps – that’ll work. Of course, there’d be the noise, vibration, and safety concerns of San Francisco voters, but that will get addressed later, one assumes…
And of course, a few speed bumps is nothing like this recent proposal.
And oh, down Mexico way, if a municipality want to have a nothingburger speed bumps like this, they’d hire somebody to do it one day and then it’d be done the next – it wouldn’t turn into an expensive half-year “project” with countless meetings and endless news releases…
I’m taking things slow here. Peasant Pies is gone from 303 Sacramento. In its place is this joint with no seating. This is a real business registered with SFGov.
Now, check out the asking prices. If you want to go hog-wild, you can order UNI plus rice for $40 to $200(!) – click on the photo to see the prices. Is this meant for more than one person? IDK. I’m not sure how many servings of sea urchin gonads plus rice you’d get. Isn’t this a lot of money for lunch? (In mitigation, you can wash down your meal with a can of soda, for just $1 more.)
I’m not sure if they’re suggesting the seafood is flown in from Japan or if this place is just similar to a Japanese fish market. I’ll tell you, there was a Yoshinoya fast food donburi place what tried to make a go of it about a block away from here. They served inexpensive “beef bowls,” like something a taxi driver would eat on break. They didn’t last long.
But this place is different – it’s expensive, and all seafood AFAICS. It’s not at all on social media AFAIK. It’s terra incognita, foodies!
Have at it.
