Keeping warm on the streets near the Fell DMV, 2015:
If Pablo doesn’t want to live and work in the bay area, that’s OK, right?
Starting from the southeast, take Army/Cesar Chavez to Clipper and around Twin Peaks and up 7th Avenue and then jink over to like 11th Avenue (whatever it takes to get the dry rub chicken places of the Inner Sunset inside the City Limits – they seem pretty lively at night) and then up through GGP and the Richmond District up to the Presidio, where there’s a nice jag at 7th Avenue and then back east along West Pacific at the border and then up north along the Lyon Street Steps and then around Palace Drive all the way to the Bay and then you capture the waterfront all the way down to just north of Warm Water Cove:
Oh, Divisadero doesn’t mean division, BTW.
Let’s hear first from Park Station’s Captain Vaswani:
And here’s the map, or at least the part of it that reflects the changes. Red lines are existing and blue lines are the future. Richmond Station loses its kink on its eastern border. Northern Station gets more of the area directly to its east. Central and the Tenderloin southern borders move south to capture all of the northern part of Market Street as Southern station moves south to Mission Bay. And let’s see, the Tenderloin (nee Tenderloin Task Force) becomes more of a full-fledged station and what else, oh, no more splitting streets down the middle – stations will generally get a whole street instead of just the odd or even side of a border street:
Does this look crazy to you? It doesn’t look crazy to me.
So unless you think that the SFPD’s priorities are totally upside-down, you say, OK cops, have it your way.
Comes now Randy Shaw (speaking through his favorite female sock-puppet, Karin Drucker, who just moved to town (I think – let’s hope so) from Ohio (I think):
See that? The new border plan hasn’t even been implemented yet, and yet it’s already failing?
Now IRL, the “Uptown Tenderloin” doesn’t exist. And it never did. And having somebody besides Randy Shaw forward all the notions forwarded by that article doesn’t really help things, does it?
Perhaps journalist Karin Drucker is too close to the story?
It sure looks that way…
IDK. I’d need somebody to spell out all the rules.
Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
Well, here it is, the result of millionaire homeowners in the 94117 pressuring not-so-bright Supervisor London Breed into pressuring the SFPD and SFMTA and the rest of the SFGov alphabet soup into treating annual 420 Day at Sharon Meadow like a big corporate-sponsored event:
Katie Utehs @katieutehs: “#420 gathering in @GoldenGatePark went from being unorganized to partially organized & I’m not sure which is worse.”
“Event at Golden Gate Park – On Sunday, a large group of participants is expected to gather at Sharon Meadows [sic] inside Golden Gate Park.
The following street closures will be required by the San Francisco Police Department from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.:
Kezar Drive between Lincoln Way and John F. Kennedy Drive
Stanyan between Frederick and Oak streets
Haight Street between Masonic and Stanyan streets
During the street closures, Muni buses will be allowed through the closed streets. Personnel from SFPD and SFMTA will determine to re-route Muni buses as crowds grow. Muni bus re-routes will be expected to begin at approximately 3 p.m.
Heavy pedestrian traffic is expected around the event area.”
Here are a few of the closed streets:
And so of course Fell turned into a parking lot, what with Kezar, Gateway to the Sunsets, shut down (for some reason) this year:
Sometimes I just don’t know…
