Historical Retrospective, or Selling Out Beach Culture

 

Zephyr Realty uploaded this quaint video piece about the Sunset district and delve into the history of the beach town slightly, while trying to over sell the 4th district as a bustling hip spot to live to future residential hopefulls. Although I know they are just trying to market the houses they are dealing out here in the western side of the city Do you agree with how they portray our beloved neighborhood? Do you feel like this is how you would describe the Sunset

Let me know in the comment section below.

If ever in need of a quick espresso shot to pick up your dreary day, head over to Antigua on Taraval and 22nd. Taking up shop last year after the beloved Brown Owl Coffee decided to close its doors, its great to see that their is still a destination for coffee in the fourth district.

Kids prepped to build castles along the beach were forced away.

Although many Americans do not see the ills of our current federal government shutdown, San Francisco elementary school children felt the force of Washington’s closure.

24 elementary schools were turned away October 4th as Ocean Beach, apart of the public parks association has been closed during the fiasco in washington.

A shame to see the 30th anniversary of the event turned down as our government bickers over they’re budget issues.

This Saturday there is going to be a free show at the Village Stage at Noriega and 46th avenue in the outer sunset. Come by to hear awesome garage rock bands for free between 2 and 6.

Check out the bands before hand so you can prep yourself for the face melting sounds they are offering up.

Who forced the dogs in?

I grew up with a beautiful Shiba Inu named Ceaser since I was 8 years old, and for more than half of my life I was expected to walk the dog. This didn’t change when my parents decided to take a trip to Tahoe and thrust upon me the responsibilities  drop of lil Ceaser for the week, forcing myself to look into the Sunset districts open public parks for our four legged comrades.

Too my displeasure though I have come to find out that the sunset only offers 2 places in the district for dogs to live freely, without the pressure and stern looks from San Francisco’s Parks and Recreations for bending their superficial on leash boundaries. 

Although the sunset offers many public parks such as West Sunset Playground, McCoppin Square, The outer Sunset Parklets, all but two have rules either forcing dogs onto leashes or turning them away entirely. Image

(West Sunset Public Park offers room for Human puppies, but not for the real deal)

This discern for the many in San Francisco that like to offer their pets some leg room in a crowded city has forced dog owners to get their pets paws dirty by using the stretch of Ocean Beach along side Pacific Coast highway as their own puppy play ground.

The two public areas for dogs to thrive in are Stern Grove park off of Sloat Boulevard and the Sunset Reservoir loop around Pacheco and 27th. A slim number compared to the numerous open spaces offered to the public. 

The dog discrimination should be evaluated in the fourth district. Being forced to get my dog sandy at the beach isn’t ideal and I feel discriminated in a city so open as San Francisco.
