San Francisco has an incredibly rich collection of neighborhood blogs. Here are some highlights from blog posts published in the last week that we found particularly interesting, enlightening, amusing or terrifying:
The fine folks at Richmond District blog have a great story about the two mirrored houses at 425 and 427 10th Avenue. The story was originally published by the history buffs at the Western Neighborhoods Project.
From The Ocean Beach Bulletin blog comes a story that fog contains methyl mercury, in levels that are five times higher than recorded in rainwater. While the article goes on to say that the levels are still very low and aren’t considered harmful, I wonder if it is only a matter of time before the gas-mask is the new must-have hipster accessory for Outer Sunset dwellers.
Vivid flowers makes some of the most amazing floral designs. They are my go-to source for sending flowers in the city. The shop used to be located on 24th St., but according to the shop will soon be opening up at 1513 Church St. in the former Loft 1513 space according to the Noe Valley blog.
The Hayes Valley voice blog recaps a recent meeting that took place in Hayes Valley with Police Chief Greg Suhr and Captain of Northern Police Station Ann Mannix. Long story short: Crime is down.
Burrito Justice gives Mt. Sutro a makeover.
Peralta Street in Bernal Heights is like a Cheerleader on diet pills – she just can’t keep it together. From the folks at the Bernal Heights blog BernalWood comes an in-depth at what caused this once-upstanding street to crack into disconnected pieces scattered across the neighborhood. You might not find it fascinating, but we do!
