Multiple, Multiple COYOTE ADVISORY Signs, Telegraph Hill, Frisco

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

They mostly come at night, mostly, I assume, since I’ve never seen one in the daytime.

(Here are the older signs, for the record.)

Anyway, I don’t know how much more our SFGov can do, you know, than what they’re already doing. These critters were here before us and they’ll be here after we’re gone.

Get used to it…

Uh oh:

And, speaking of exceeding limits, here’s the cracked sidewalk out front:

(Level 42 is called Level 43 – why is that? And Level 44 is called Level 46 – again, why is that?)

Ah, memories:

“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.

City Residences
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.

The Residences
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.

Those from the North and East Bay(s) should consider that Frisco already has a symbol to rally around, you know, in case our historic City Flag isn’t good enough for them.

The Massive, Tumble-Down WHAT’S-IT That’s Now Sitting Near the Base of Sutro Tower – What is This Thing?

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

To me at first, it looked like a building what had fallen down:

Keep in mind that the legs of the tower are 50 yards apart.

Here’s your close-up:

And here’s how things look from Google Maps, from above:

It’s a mystery…

If Your Cell Phone Doesn’t Work Under This Massive, Low-Rise Antenna Array, Then It Probably Won’t Work Anywhere

And look, the tower pokes out of the roof of a cell phone store. Isn’t it ironic?

Boy, This is One Heck of a Screengrab: Drone as Seen by a Camera Mounted High Atop Decorative Tower of Troubled Bay Bridge

Monday, October 12th, 2015

(Uh, yes it is a decorative tower – we can talk about that some time.)

Here it is, via Aviation Week, a drone buzzing the unfinished tower of our already-failed San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge’s eastern span:

Was this a hobbyist’s drone from back when the new cable-stayed span was still under construction OR was it an authorized drone inspecting recent work? IDK.

Still, a heck of a shot.
