Fern Alley was home to the Urban Air Market, which joined the Lower Polk Art Walk as something extra to do while checking out the galleries. It was nice, I guess, but it’s stuff like this that opens your eyes to a changing neighborhood. Change is inevitable, but undesirable if it takes the rent from $2500/mo to $3200/mo. This city’s income inequality is out of control, so when you see gentrification rolling into your area, it’s terrifying. And City Hall doesn’t seem to be worried about any of it. Keep your head down, Tenders. Maybe some of us will weather this storm.

I mentioned a while back that Grubstake’s address was listed on a flyer that mentioned building demolition. Luckily, Grubstake is not on the wrecking ball’s list of targets.

A 12-story residential building with ground floor retail submitted its first environmental impact study way back in the middle of 2012. And it’s submitted another one with a public comment period to end at the end of June.

The proposed location is Pine, between Polk and Van Ness, and extends all the way to Austin alley. Socket Site covered the project in 2013 when the 2nd impact study was submitted. [ http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2013/11/another_big_pine_street_building_with_107_condos_is_in.html ]

You can read the 423 page study online. Case number 2006.0383E .

Elephant Sushi is having their soft opening. It’s on the same block as the new-ish Korean spot, Jin Mi (which I had today and was pretty excellent). Golden Gate, between Larkin and Hyde. Elephant Sushi is a Russian Hill sushi joint and this is their second location. Note: This place is strictly for the lunch work crowd, and not those of us who actually live around here. They close at 2pm.

Slightly off-topic, but congratulations to the 2014 graduates who receives their diplomas at Bill Graham today!

Sometimes the march of gentrification takes out bad actors and we all hooray. And then sometimes a place like City Discount falls and you realize that gentrification is a beast that eats everything. So here’s a hearty FUCK YOU to the landlord of this block who kicked out a solid, well-heeled business. Thank you for being a greedy soon of a bitch.

Can this speculative bubble pop already? I hate losing our neighborhood heroes.

Polk between California and Sacramento.

K&S market on Larkin between Geary and Post closed permanently last week. Next door to the best Thai in the ‘hood, House of Thai née Thai House Express. I’m sure the market will be replaced by something rather quickly, as these 2 blocks of Larkin have seen quite a bit of action in the last year.

Our very own gay and lesbian friendly United Church of Christ at the corner of Polk and Bush has filled suit against North Carolina’s law against same sex marriage. Fight the good fight, churchees!

Olea, the “holy shit that’s a long line for brunch” spot and former Red Door Cafe locale at the corner of Larkin and California, will be throwing tables and chairs on the sidewalk after watching Mymy across the street do the same thing a month ago.
