Ah, the 351 California Building: Erupting Office-Worker Poo onto the Sidewalk of Sansome on a Daily Basis

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Here’s some background and now let’s have an update.

San Francisco’s Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea of poo:

Stepping over and on raw sewage, on a daily basis:

Is this rainwater? You wish. It’s the accumulated sewage from the previous eruption. Most of the time this area is wet:

Oh well.

The Poo Problems of 351 California Street – Why Does Raw Sewage Erupt on the Sidewalk Here all the Time?

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

This is the sidewalk of Sansome betwixt Pine and California near our tony Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

The vent you see on the right regularly overflows with stinky raw sewage.

Why does that happen?

And stuff that looks like toilet paper, is toilet paper, Gentle Reader.

And this is the same thing on Clayton near the 94117 Post Office:

But in this location, this condition doesn’t seem to be a regular thing.

The problem near the corner of California and Sansome near the new CVS in the Financh is ongoing.

It’s chronic.

Oh well.

Remember when Willie Brown turned Market Street into, I’m srsly, the “Champs-Élysées of the Western Hemisphere?”

I do. Good times.

Impressive volume, flow rate and stream cohesiveness:

(Note the questioning look from a cyclist on the same sullied sidewalk. Civic Center Mike might not approve…)

Now here’s the end to this vignette.

See? A long romantic hug with a light pole

Bay to Breakers 2009, the Day After, How Bad is It Out There?

Monday, May 18th, 2009

What does the City and County of San Francisco look like in the foggy, cold dawn of day – the day after the 98th Annual Bay to Breakers Civic Event and Fun Run? Let’s take a tour.

As always, You Make The Call.

A cyclist on his way to work heading west on the Panhandle bike path - neatly avoiding the broken AND the unbroken bottle. That other stuff you can see is from the giant overhanging Eucalyptus trees. Click to expand:

An abandoned parade float and plastic cups that midnight recyclers don’t seem to value. (This was the same vessel used by some white-clad sailors the previous day – the mast was like a dancing pole. See?)

DPW will have its hands full today:

Divisidero. This block isn’t officially part of the course but it got some garbage anyway. The bulk of the garbage on Fell Street was sweeped up yesterday afternoon.

Uh oh, call the hazmat teamto Hayes Street Hill. On second thought, that’s going to cost taxpayers $1000 or something, right? Oh, this isn’t in your job description and your orders are to call the hazardous materials team for disposal of all “toxic waste?” Alright, I get your point

The Anschutz people have some of these big bins out there with signs that go “TRASH HERE.” (Somewhat patronizing you might think.) Anywho, the neighbors know a free deal when they see it, so Bring Out Your Dead obsolete, bigscreen, CRT TVs. One two three, let’s throw it on the pile. (Bad form.)

DPW in Golden Gate Park proper near Oak. They get up early, huh?

JFK Jr. Drive near the Conservatory of Flowers. Some heavy-drinking frat boys got their float into the Dumpster. Good for them. 

And it looks as if the Citizens for the Preservation of the Bay2Breakers were up to something after the street party. All you can do as a team of people is bag stuff up and leave it for DPW, right? Good form.

So there you have it.
