We’ll be looking into the story, but this is also a great opportunity to crowdsource a story. What do those in the neighborhood think? Is there a crash/clash between residents and the new restaurants, etc. along 20th Street between Alabama and Florida. Solutions?

It was once a lot quieter and now Southern Exposure and the Atlas Cafe have been joined by Sightglass Coffee, La Salumeria, and Central Kitchen in addition to some new retail.

    My grandma has been living in 20th St for the past 15 years and I used to love the nice quiet neighborhood. Now it’s just a mess there is never any parking too many businesses in one block that it is disturbing the residents. I think the red zones shouldn’t be there because the residents that live there should have rights to parking. I personally don’t like how this turned out and I actually called and made a report for the tree and it still has not been resolved.

    You can’t tell me that driver didn’t realize he was under a large tree. He had to be driving a huge truck taking out a big limb like that. Very sad that he had no consideration.
    No more restaurants! Besides the ones you listed there is Flour & Water, Universal Restaurant, Blowfish Sushi & Southern Pacific Brewery.
