The New York Times Travel section has a brief little blurb on the Outer Sunset neighborhood in San Francisco, which happens to feature a store that showcases work from some of our clients. The store is Woodshop – and it is located at 3725 Noriega Street (open by appointment only). It features surfboards from Danny Hess, who is an incredibly talented surfer and surfboard designer.
His wife is an amazing photographer. If you need a custom surfboard or a photographer, you couldn’t hire better. When they bought their house in the Outer Sunset, it was, well, a disaster. But they both have an amazing sense of style, and turned their rundown home into something quite beautiful.
But anyway, back to New York Times article about the Outer Sunset. Bleak? I mean, really? It certainly doesn’t have the sunshine or murals of the Inner Mission, and it is a fairly quiet residential neighborhood, but I have to take issue with the description of the neighborhood. I mean, really! When did quiet and foggy become a synonym for bleak? If we are going to paint the Outer Sunset with the “bleak” brush because it is quiet and residential, then we might as well do the same to every suburb in America… Oh wait… back up… Most suburbs in America are bleak… but the Outer Sunset, while gray, foggy, and sleepy, just isn’t!
So hop on the N-Judah or drive out to Ocean Beach and start exploring! Make an appointment at Woodshop, visit Outerlands for a bite to eat, or hit Trouble Coffee for a cup of Joe, and after you discover for yourself that a quiet neighborhood nestled up against the Pacific Ocean isn’t at all that nasty b-word, give us a call and we’ll see if we can’t find you a sweet pad of your own to call home in the neighborhood.
