If you’ve ever asked yourself which neighborhood you’re in while standing at an intersection, here’s an app that may help.
To check it out, go to isaa.ch/sf, and follow the instructions on your screen.
It doesn’t show you a map, or tell you the history of the neighborhood, or link to Wikipedia, or provide droll stereotypes or give you vital stats like population or elevation or weather. It just tells you what neighborhood you’re currently in—and how far you are from the closest adjacent neighborhood. That’s it.
We say “may” because BernalWood tried it in La Lengua and the app said it was Bernal Heights. It’s still in beta so there’s hope this will come later, as will Upper and Lower Safeway and DMV Heights, maybe? Fingers crossed.
