Know your San Francisco Hood

This is actually quite cool in that the Chron has set up an interactive map (page is long dead as the Chron ain’t keepin’ it real) for people to map out where they think they actually live as in, which neighborhood. Unfortunately they didn’t really parse things so well so you get, “The Mission” as well as “Mission” or “Mission St.” Maybe they’ll fix that in a final version, but it’s it’s interesting to see how people are defining their sense of place in this city.

It’s all based on this article which talks about how real estate types are working to rename a great number of areas, like calling the “Financial District” the “Barbary Coast” for some godforsaken reason. Obviously, things aren’t selling well if this is what they’re spending their time doing. Take a look and map out where you are if it’s still available. I’m either in “Nob Hill” or the “Tendernob” depending on who you ask. Thankfully I’m not in “Tenderloin Heights”. They’re a bunch of drunken snobs over there.
