Park your ride on stair railings at the new Metreon and this is what will happen – you’ll get a note like this taped on:

Here’s your mise-en-scene with legally parked bikes in the foreground and illegally parked bikes in the background:
See them all? Every bike has a note. (How many reams of paper does the Metreon go through in a week?)
Obviously, there’s no more parking spaces left on the north side, Metreon.
Why not put this on your list of things to do, Metreon? More bike parking near Mission where it’ll get used…

Craiglist Founder Craig Newmark lives on this same hill but further down, so he gets smaller backyard birds…

Hours after yesterday’s collision and brouhaha in the Castro involving two historic F-Line streetcars (making up the bread part of an SUV sandwich), MUNI workers were still on the job about a half-mile away near the Duboce Yard in the back of the Church Street Safeway.
In technical terms, them wires up there done fell down. So the crew of an awesome yellow truck (with a scissors lift in the middle) came along and started winching things back together high above Market Street, with a quickness. Hurray!

This is what rush hour looks like on San Francisco’s famous Embarcadero waterfront road.
These electric trolleys operated by MUNI are from all over the world.

San Francisco’s MUNI has it’s very own Pacific Electric Railway Red Car, #1061. The Red Car system of Los Angeles County died out, as detailed in the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, so the Market Street Railway decided to re-use the red-and-orange paint scheme as an homage.
This particular PCC railcar was never in L.A. It spent most of its life in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The real El Lay vehicles were double ended – this one has a front and a rear.

No matter, people love it anyway. Look for it on Market Street’s F-Line.
