Not sure what local homeowners associations, such as the NOPNA in NoPA, would think of this area bidness:

Disturbia: Trail of “Bloody” Footprints on Hayes Leads to $5 Million House That Used to be a Baptist Church – Good Friday?Saturday, April 4th, 2015
Via Nuala Sawyer:
(Now I’ll tell you, whenever I leave bloody footprints, the trail generally, how do you say, attenuates as I move on. Moving on…)
Sure seems curious that this trail starts at the more-trafficked part of the NoPA / Western Addition and leads to 601 Broderick, the “THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD” house, which, of course, used to be Gethsemane Baptist Church.
And then this building got sold for $5 million(!) as a Single Family Home.
And now it stands out, IMO, in an area of expensive houses.
Oh, here you go, CurbedSF’s Tracy Elsen called these transactions “our absolute favorite flip of the year.”
And here’s some assigned reading from Building Talker James Hill
But of course, I don’t know who did what to create those imprints…
A Steam Clean for the May Queen: SFGov Spends Thousands More on the Panhandle’s McKinley Statue, Once AgainMonday, March 23rd, 2015
Here you go, this is what it looks like when the RPD spends thousands of your hard-earned to steam clean the McKinley Statue. (Hey, whatever happened to KKK Katie?)
Get up to speed on this neverending game of cat and mouse here – just keep reading down.
IDK, are these people contractors paid by the RPD / SFGov? Prolly. Looks like a pretty easy gig, just get some machine and some green vests and then you’re raking in some sweet sweet govt cash:
And actually, I don’t know how much offensive Nazi graffiti was cleaned up this go-around. I hadn’t noticed any.
Perhaps these people were just cleaning the steps this go-around and this wasn’t a five-figure budget-crusher for the Arts Commish / Rec and Park Dept? I know not.
I can see why elements of SFGov, politically-connected, white & wizened millionaires who live in million dollar houses far outside the city limits, want to just throw up their arms by throwing up a metal fence around these steps at the eastern edge of Golden Gate Park. Oh, and local real estate interests, the realtors who live and “prospect” in the 94117 – they want an ugly fence as well, around this iconic meeting place.
I can see why, it’s their cry for help. But I don’t approve of no fence.
(And, mind you, the very same people who want the Great McKinley Fence are those who 86’ed the harmless Panhandle Bandshell a few years back…)
McKinley Statue Graffiti, 2015 Update: Yep, It’s Got Some More – Here It Is, More Evidence for Fence ProponentsThursday, January 8th, 2015
Here’s how things stand now:
And here’s a little history, complete with an artist’s conception of what the anti-graffiti fence would look like – keep reading down, through the webpages of time.
You know, fundamentally, this is the big landmark at the gateway to Golden Gate Park. I don’t like the fence idea but I also don’t like people coming by to see giant KKK letters on the base of this statue for days, weeks and months. And the Rec and Parks and Arts Commission people say it’s a real expensive PITA to keep the graffiti off.
So I don’t know…

When Visiting Chinatown, Be Sure To Take a Selfie with a Banksy – “Peaceful Hearts Doctor” at 799 Commercial Near GrantWednesday, June 25th, 2014
Thusly. Strike a pose, mate:
Click to expand, Gov’ner. Right!
Of course this shot was from back in the day, from back before the Black Paint Attack of 2013, which damaged the appearance of the famously peaceful heart doctor.
But a genuine 2010 Banksy is a genuine 2010 Banksy, right? So check it out the next time you’re on Eddy Grant Avenue – it’s electric!
Sure you can!
