Monday, September 11th, 2017

I guess the ad is what’s new here – I’ve never seen this:

Serramonte Center is your prototypical mall. It’s undergoing an urbanist-inspired makeover that makes it an even less attractive place to go to. I’ll tell you, I’m not going to go there and then complain about going there on a regular basis, it’s just that my special lady friend had something delivered to the fucking mall (like why would you want to go there?) instead of to herself, by mistake, and of course it wasn’t her mistake. But what can you do? So you drive on down there and there are zero parking spaces and all this, as I said, urbanist-type crap (huge sidewalks, aesthetic plantings what take up a lot of room) that they are constructing. There’s no place to park as they are making new multilevel structures and there’s no real place to drop people off close to the stores. It’s a hybrid of old and new, and it’s not looking good. And of course even after they finish it’s still not going to be good.

JMO.

Colma, CA is a Land of Fog and Cemeteries and Shut-Down Car Dealerships

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Here’s Colma (nee Lawndale until 1941), CA, the West’s #1 necropolis. Why does it have its own BART station¬†and musical? No one knows.

But what it does have includes car dealerships (both kinds – the dead and the living dead), fog, and, of course, cemeteries. Truly, it is the Land of Wind and Ghosts.

A look down Serramonte Boulevard.

Not too long ago, Tom Hanks got his giant black Lexus from a dealership on this street, but all the Lexuseses are gone now. Will they return? No one knows.

See you there, on the next dreaded sunny day.
