Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had an interesting walk through the Western Addition, Pacific Heights and the Marina. I walked Buchanan end to end and it was interesting to see all the variety and how much mid 20th century development in the Western Addition there is that I don't like.
This is at Market and 16th. It's recent and I love the way it looks in the morning. Here's hoping I still like it in 10 years:
At Buchanan and Market is the Architectronica designed Linea which is super fantastic. Love love love it. My friend Shelby just moved in and I'm mildly jealous.
A couple blocks down the street is the Nightingale house which has been thoroughly renovated and looks amazing:
The view of the old UCSF campus that's getting transformed into retirement housing:
My first apartment in San Francisco was in this building, 300 Buchanan, in 2000. I lived there for about six months until I met and moved in with Mr. Poe:
This is one of the grand Victorians in Alamo Square. So pretty:
I don't know anything about this but I saw it where Buchanan had been blocked off for a couple of blocks. I'm struggling to call it art. Was it one of a pair. Was it part of a larger installation? I got nothing.
Buchanan runs through the heart of Japantown:
This is the gorgeous synagogue on Sacramento. I've had a hard time finding a good angle to take pics of it from:
This is a beautiful California Pacific medical library:
I love this modern tower. Have the doors always been painted like this?
This house has gone the mosaic rider route for their front steps. I don't love it in residential use. It looks a little cat lady.
Some pics from the Marina;
Me in Fort Mason Park:
I noted two cruise ships in port when I was heading in on Bay. I love that we're getting so much cruise ship traffic. It's like free money for the city.
After work I went to my spin and strength training classes and then went home and went to bed. It had been a very long day and I was completely beat.
