Oh look, three in a row:
One wonders what’s inside these RVs:
Perhaps more bike parts?
Perhaps from one of your bikes, Gentle Reader…
As it looks from my ‘hood at Zero Dark Thirty:
Artist’s conception of finished tower after installation:
The Terrible Zigûr will keep an “eye” on Mount Sutro, depicted at right, and maybe buy Twitter, who knows.
When asked for comment, Gorthaur the Cruel cryptically bellowed, “Bedrock, baby!”
That’s a good one, Sauron. Keep ’em coming.
Welcome to town, Dark Lord.
First, the corner of Golden Gate and Leavenworth was all like this:
But then it got hounded by SFGov, so it went away
And then, oddly, it became 826 Valencia:
But around the corner, you see that BIG BOY MARKET is still making money off of the intersection of Golden Gate and Leavenworth, through advertising:
Hey, do I question whether the “real problems” of the Twitterloin originate(d?) from a “handful of lawless corner stores” the way CWNevius says?

“More Than A Place To Live, This Is A Way To Live.
Rare and precious, shimmering on the skyline like crystal, Millennium Tower is one of Worth Magazine’s “Top 10 Residential Buildings in the World.” Inspired by the very essence of San Francisco, in form and in function, this is an address like no other.
FOR EVERY LIFESTYLE, A LIVING SPACE. Millennium Tower residences are the canvases where owners create their own unique San Francisco lifestyle. Streetwise and close to the city’s energy. Comfortably situated in a welcoming, open aerie. Or high above it all, with a view of the iconic Bay Bridge and the world beyond. Here, urban luxury living is elevated to an art form.
In the 11-story mid-rise adjacent to the main tower, City Residences offer an urban loft aesthetic connected to the energy of the street.
Ensconced on the 3rd through 25th floors, The Residences feature clean lines, designer finishes and exceptional city views.
The Grand Residences
From the vantage point of floors 26 through 60, The Grand Residences are the pinnacle of luxury, unparalleled in San Francisco.

my car in a lot that states ‘DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN CAR’ all over the place (which gives you an indication of how safe this part of town is)
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.
