[Photo Source: Noah Berger] We received this email last night from the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, and we’re sure you all heard about the Emergent Closure of the Bay Bridge yesterday due to a “cantilever section made over Labor Day weekend[,which] snapped and crashed onto the upper deck of the span late [...]
Entries for October, 2009
With several local photographers coming together on one site, Caliber (calibersf.com) is hands down the best photo blog we’ve ever seen in San Francisco, quite possibly on all of the internets, and it’s worth bookmarking and checking everyday. [We couldn't pick just one "favorite" photo to show you as example, so we grabbed three.] ["Exploding [...]
If it’s true what is being said about CiTi Apartments on SocketSite, that they are no more, will the gold and columns go too? That gold must be worth something. Surely one of the countless banks they owe money to could pawn those off.
Yesterday, I had a client meeting, but didn’t actually get to meet the client (long story), but the boyfriend was there to fill in, and I got this email today (edited for flow) that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy: Hey Alex, Thanks for stopping by yesterday! Sorry I couldn’t make it. Thought [...]
Go check it out. Looks like the surf is going to be absolutely horrendous, which means you’ll have more time to hang out, check out the Rip Curl wetsuits, and get autographs from the man (Tom Curren) himself! Today, 8am- 12pm on Ocean Beach in front of the Wise Surf Shop.
You gotta have faith, and a good photographer to get just the right light and angle when capturing the essence of a property to help it sell. Good marketing remarks help too: “View of neighbor”: Let’s hope he’s not the neighbor, cuz that’s getting a bit too close. -140 Faith, $760,500
It’s no secret, we love Property Shark, and if you’re serious about your San Francisco house hunting or Halloween, you should too. They’ve just released a new Crime Map that is frighteningly detailed (click on maps for larger images): A little zoom goes a long way when you’re looking to score (Trick-or-treating in this area, [...]
The email: Editor- Take a look at this Cole Valley condo. Purchased in April 2005 for $800,000, relisted [11 days ago] for $749,000. No upgrades, no permit history, save for a new roof. I would prefer to remain anonymous. Thanks. Anonymous you shall remain, thankful we shall be to all of the readers, including you, [...]
The price lured us in ($369,000 for a TIC at 77 7th Ave), but it’s the use of internet mapping technology to lure YOU in that earned a spot on our pages. Didn’t get it at first glance? Fret not, neither did we. Look again. It’s actually NOT a big green mass of something weird [...]
Every so often we come across blogs that are worthy of a plug, and the Richmond District Blog is one such blog. It is well written, a good source of information, fun, and easy on the eyes (not loaded with a bunch of crap and web design mistakes). Take a look, bookmark it, and be [...]
