A Hipster Garage Sale in the NOPA and the Shrinking Western Addition

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The Western Addition, contrary to what Wikipedia would have you believe, used to encompass all of San Francisco west of Larkin Street. You’ll find the term “WESTERN ADDITION” in the property records of all sorts of high rent San Francisco real estate. But smaller enclaves have been carved out over the years, most recently with the North of Panhandle Area. This process is now complete, so the shrinking Western A has shrunk again.

And here’s the proof. First note the Underwood typewriter and then take it from there. These hipsters are moving out, but they’ll be replaced.

As seen on the eastern side of Divisidero:

Hang in there, Western Addition. Those real estate agents will stop subdividing you, eventually.
